About the World Bank Capital at Risk Notes Program

The World Bank Capital at Risk Notes program facilitates risk transfer solutions for the World Bank and its clients using the capital markets. Under this program, the World Bank issues notes where some or all of the investors’ principal may be at risk, such as catastrophe bonds ('cat bonds'). Capital at Risk Notes are issued under the World Bank’s Global Debt Issuance Facility and receive the same tax and securities law exemptions, but they may not be assigned any security rating or may be assigned a lower security rating than the Facility.
