With investors

AFC is renowned for its entrepreneurial, commercially driven approach to execution and delivery, which we intertwine with local knowledge, global expertise and deep understanding of our markets.
We always take an end-to-end view of projects, seeking to participate through the entire project life cycle from concept design to operations, working with partners to find solutions to market challenges.
We are one of Africa’s unique success stories, well positioned to continue playing a catalytic role in mobilising global capital to help bridge Africa’s critical infrastructure deficits. As such, we consistently seek proactive engagements with private and multilateral institutions to provide finance for transformative infrastructure projects in Africa with high developmental impact.
This clear focus has enabled us to grow stronger year by year to become the second highest investment-grade rated multilateral financial institution in Africa – with a constant A3/P2 (Positive outlook) rating since 2015 from Moody’s Investors Service. We have consistently grown our balance sheet, broadened our asset base and expanded our geographic footprint. Since 2007, AFC has mobilised up to US$5.1 billion of funding from global debt markets and deployed over US$9.5 billion in investments to finance projects in 35 African countries.

Shareholder structure

AFC has 29 shareholders with a significant proportion from the private sector. This innovative structure has served our performance historically – with the support of regional and non-regional multilateral institutions, long-term investors, impact investors and academia, all driven to help Africa achieve its full economic potential.
