The proposed project consists of a Synthetic Risk Transfer Transaction in which IFC will provide to BNP Paribas S.A. an unfunded guarantee on credit losses up to US$50 million of the mezzanine tranche of a US$1 billion revolving reference portfolio from the Bank's eligible trade finance and corporate loan-related credit exposures. This will be IFC?s first SRT with BNP Paribas and BNP Paribas first SRT covering Emerging Markets assets. The proposed project will enable BNP Paribas to reduce the regulatory risk weights attached to its EM portfolio, thereby freeing up capital which the Bank will deploy to provide more emerging markets related trade finance.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
