Focused on Corporates in Emerging Africa
We concentrate our expertise on the markets that make up the core of Africa and we are not distracted by commitments opportunities in other "emerging markets". Our success is tied to the success of our clients projects in the markets that have the greatest growth potential and the least amount global capital access.

Fast and flexible
Because we are not part of a large, complex, multi-jurisdictional financial institution we are highly flexible and responsive. We are able to put together innovative transaction solutions that the larger financial institutions are just not structured to do. We are also able to consider smaller transactions that are more typically required in emerging Africa.

Local Expertise and Global Capital Access
We uniquely have both on the ground experience of the financial and commercial markets in emerging Africa; and well developed relationships with an extensive network of leading commercial lenders, Export Credit Agencies (ECAs), boutique banks, family offices, private finance institutions, and private equity firms.
Private
Because we are are privately held and undertake no banking activity, we act independently, objectively, without conflicts of interest and always to our client's advantage. We value discretion just as much as our client's do - which is why we do not promote or discuss client transactions with any outside parties.

Consistency and continuity
Our commitment to supporting and facilitating the complete infrastructural development of emerging Africa requires us to have a long-term approach to our business and to our client partnerships. Because we do not have other regions of focus our immediate and future success is intimately connected to the success of our clients in this region.

We provide a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions and governments.
Raise Finance
Despite the incredible investment opportunities in Africa, access to capital remains one of the biggest challenges for corporates operating on the continent.

We design globally competitive, long-term infrastructure finance and short-term transaction-based funding solutions for mid to large size institutional clients - in East, West and Central Africa.

Our Corporate Advisory Group has successfully arranged over $600m in short term funding, over $3.7B in long-term funding and advised on projects worth over $32B.
Secure Strategic Co-Investors
You recognise the value and expertise that established, successful international investors can bring to your projects and business.

We have well developed relationships with an extensive network of leading infrastructure funds, development agencies, private equity funds, private equity firms, investment partnerships, family offices and private investors - committed to investing in suitable projects in Emerging Africa.

We are careful to match you with the right kinds of investors - who are perfectly aligned with your goals.
Develop
We are excited about Africa's economic potential and are committed to supporting private-sector led growth on the continent by providing onshore institutional clients access to the best global investment banking services.

We create, incubate and invest directly in high growth businesses. We are less focused on specific sectors and more focused on investing in the right people - who have ambitious ideas, foresight and passion to change the world.

We are currently developers of over $2B of infrastructure projects.


We emphasise organic growth through the development of our own professional staff and recruiting both seasoned investment professionals and graduates.

In the case of graduates, we look for a top class degree, mastery of english and preferably mastery of french or portugese - the languages commonly spoken in our regions of focus - in addition to their mother tongue.

Many also hold a postgraduate qualification. All analysts and junior associates are required to take the CFA exam as part of our graduate training programme.

Several options are available to you:
- Request a student placement.
- Join one of our graduate programmes.
- Apply for one of our job openings.
