Finanz- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft Island (Finance and Development Company of Iceland?)

The Finance and Development Corporation of Iceland
Explanation:
It’s unlikely to be a ‘company’ or ‘society’ and it’s not a ‘ministry’ because I downloaded tedious PDF files from http://eng.idnadarraduneyti.is/. In these circumstances ‘corporation’ has a pleasant non-committal ring to it. Who knows what a ‘corporation’ is or does or what its status is? Finance and Development are, of course, basic Eurish.
