CABEI is committed to promoting inclusive and sustainable development, promoting environmental sustainability, and ensuring that its projects have a positive social impact.
The Bank's efforts have been recognized internationally, as evidenced by Moody's Investor Service increasing CABEI's long-term international risk rating from "A1" to "Aa3" in 2019, and Standard & Poor's confirming its international credit rating at "AA." These ratings have solidified CABEI's position as the best credit risk in Latin America and significantly improved its prospects of achieving an indicator of "AAA." As a result, the Bank has continued to grow, establishing itself as the most significant source of multilateral funding in the region.
