General Information

Additional Information regarding the Notes

1.         The language set out under the heading "Use of Proceeds" in the Prospectus shall be deleted in its entirety and replaced by the following:

            "The net proceeds from the sale of the Notes will be included in the ordinary capital resources of the Bank and, will not be committed or earmarked for lending to, or financing of, any specific loans, projects or programs.  The Bank, in partnership with its member countries, works to reduce poverty and inequalities in Latin America and the Caribbean by promoting economic and social development in a sustainable, climate friendly way.

            The Bank's strategic priorities include social inclusion and equality, productivity and innovation and economic integration along with three cross-cutting issues: gender equality and diversity, climate change and environmental sustainability, and institutional capacity and the rule of law.  Each strategic priority of the Bank aligns to at least one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals ("SDGs"), with all goals covered within the Bank's institutional strategy, which may be adapted from time to time should the United Nations SDGs definition evolve.

All projects undertaken by the Bank go through the Bank's rigorous sustainability framework. The framework tracks measurable results, adherence to lending targets and the effectiveness of its environmental and social safeguards. The Bank's administrative and operating expenses are currently covered entirely by the Bank's various sources of revenue, consisting primarily of net interest margin and investment income (as more fully described in the Bank's Information Statement)."

2.         Additional Investment Considerations

            There are significant risks associated with the Notes including but not limited to exchange rate risk, price risk and liquidity risk. Investors should consult their own financial, legal, accounting and tax advisors about the risks associated with an investment in these Notes, the appropriate tools to analyze that investment, and the suitability of the investment in each investor's particular circumstances. Holders of the Notes should also consult with their professional tax advisors regarding tax laws applicable to them and, in particular, with respect to tax laws relating to debt securities in bearer form.


            The Bank may hedge its obligations under the Notes by entering into a swap transaction with the Dealer or one of its affiliates as swap counterparty.  Assuming no change in market conditions or any other relevant factors, the price, if any, at which the Dealer or another purchaser might be willing to purchase Notes in a secondary market transaction is expected to be lower, and could be substantially lower, than the original issue price of the Notes.  This is due to a number of factors, including that (i) the potential profit to the secondary market purchaser of the Notes may be incorporated into any offered price and (ii) the cost of funding used to value the Notes in the secondary market is expected to be higher than our actual cost of funding incurred in connection with the issuance of the Notes.  In addition, the original issue price of the Notes included, and secondary market prices are likely to exclude, the projected profit that our swap counterparty or its affiliates may realize in connection with this swap.  Further, as a result of dealer discounts, mark-ups or other transaction costs, any of which may be significant, the original issue price may differ from values determined by pricing models used by our swap counterparty or other potential purchasers of the Notes in secondary market transactions.
