Caribbean Development Bank

The Caribbean Development Bank is a financial institution which assists Caribbean nations in financing social and economic programs in its member countries. Created on October 18, 1969 by a conference of eighteen countries and territories in Kingston, Jamaica, it has its headquarters located in Bridgetown, Barbados.

In 2004 Standard & Poor's gave the CDB a rating of (AAA) Triple A, the firm's highest rating. According to Standard and Poor if the Caribbean Development bank "continues its prudent financial policies of the past, its rating should remain stable over the medium term."

At the end of 2000, the bank had shareholders' equity of US$426 million.
