Jingdong Hua is Vice President and Treasurer of IFC. He is responsible for managing IFC’s financial position, safeguarding its international triple-A rating and maintaining its standing as a premier issuer in the global capital markets. He oversees liquid assets, market borrowings, and risk-management instruments totaling over $100 billion. Under Mr. Hua’s leadership, IFC focuses on capital market development in emerging markets, through pioneering transactions such as a first-of-its-kind global Indian rupee program that set a benchmark yield curve for the offshore rupee markets, and market-opening local currency bonds in Armenia, Costa Rica, China, Nigeria, Rwanda, and many other countries. Mr. Hua is also responsible for IFC’s loan syndications and co-investment program, which has mobilized over $50 billion for private sector development. He oversaw the creation of the IFC Managed Co-Lending Portfolio Program—a landmark program that has mobilized significant funds from sovereign and institutional investors and established a potential model that development institutions could use to raise the trillions of dollars that will be needed each year to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Prior to joining IFC, Mr. Hua served as Deputy Treasurer at the Asian Development Bank in Manila. He previously held a number of positions in the treasury departments of ADB, the United Nations Development Program in New York, and the African Development Bank in Abidjan. Mr. Hua, a Chinese national, started his career in 1983 with China National Chemical Construction Corporation. He holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Qingdao University of Science and Technology, an MBA Finance from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Master of Public Administration (MPA) from Columbia University.
