The solutions we deliver

More than just a financier, AFC constantly strives to be a 360-degree solutions provider
Our intensely focused problem-solving culture is built solidly on innovation and agility, applied through our holistic approach to developing projects from conception to close. In this way we unlock the potential of Africa’s key sectors as part of our objective to foster economic growth and the industrial development of African countries.
This culture has enabled us to adapt and navigate increasing complexity, including today’s emerging post-COVID reality and the challenge of climate change. While protectionism dominates elsewhere, Africa is liberalising and opening up through the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA). In this context, AFC continues to galvanise investment opportunities and to advocate for Africa to play its role as a growth engine for the global economy.
We have cemented a proven track record in de-risking and distributing capital to deliver well-structured and bankable infrastructure projects. We were also first to offer cornerstone project preparation, development and finance – as well as a range of relevant advisory services to de-risk projects – alongside our investment capacity.
