* As measured by average repayment maturity of the loan at commitment.

** A basis swap adjustment of -0.15% is applicable to EUR fixed spread, -0.35% is applicable to the JPY fixed spread, and -0.05% is applicable to GBP fixed spread.

The decrease in the fixed spread is the result of a decrease in IBRD’s projected funding cost, which Bank management reviews at least quarterly to ensure that it reflects evolving, underlying market conditions.
