Our Capital Markets team advises businesses and investors as they raise, structure, and deploy capital. We bring global best-in-class transaction advisory, due diligence, and capital structuring services, informed by our deep networks and knowledge of African markets. Over the past 10 years, we have closed transactions worth >$1.5B across 30 African countries, designing appropriate equity, debt, quasi-equity, and blended capital structures for early, growth-stage, and mature businesses as well as public-private partnerships and joint ventures. Our experience extends across sectors and benefits from our consulting team’s deep engagement in value chains and with multiple industry actors.

Alongside our transaction services, we have built niche expertise in blended finance, serving as advisers to family offices, foundations, development partners, and development finance institutions to design innovative financing mechanisms with ambitious aims to build industries and achieve impact outcomes.
