IIF Best Practices for Investor Relations, 2022 Update

The IIF Best Practices for Investor Relations are voluntary guidelines for country authorities seeking to enhance their investor relations and data dissemination practices, in conjunction with the Principles for Stable Capital Flows and Fair Debt Restructuring. The IIF regularly reviews the adherence of emerging market borrowers to these best practices and discloses key findings in the Implementation Report of the Principles that the Principles Consultative Group publishes annually. In line with recent revisions of the Principles, we have updated IIF Best Practices for Investor Relations. These updates focus on various topics, including: 

  • Promoting broader debt stock coverage in sovereign data dissemination practices, including the liabilities of subnational governments and state-owned enterprises 
  • Strengthening information sharing on the creditor and currency composition of public debt 
  • Enhancing timely flow of information on borrowers’ debt service profile by creditor and instrument 
  • Encouraging debtor countries to disseminate information on environmental impacts of budgetary and fiscal policies
  • Encouraging countries to maintain a publicly accessible database of their domestic and external bond prospectuses, and publicly disclose their loan contracts with all external creditors
  • Building awareness and support among sovereign debtors for the IIF Voluntary Principles for Debt Transparency
