The proposed investment is a 50-50% unfunded risk-sharing facility (RSF) with Banco Santander Chile (“Santander” or the “Bank”) on a portfolio of medium and large corporate loans for up to US$300 million and an availability period of 3 years. As part of the Project, Santander Chile will retain at least 50% of the total portfolio exposure, while IFC will take the risk of the remaining 50% or up to US$150 million. The Project will provide Santander with a risk-mitigation tool which will allow the Bank to preserve capital for a portion of its medium and large loan portfolio. The total capital conserved per annum will be redeployed to generate up to US$150 million to support the Bank’s small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) and women-owned SMEs (“WSMEs) portfolio.

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
