Emerging Business Opportunities
As the gross national products (GNP) for certain Sub-Saharan
African countries continue to reflect a trend of consistent
growth, the business potential and opportunities for sub-Saharan
Africa will also continue to grow in most industries and
segments. For example, we see significant need and activity for
the following areas:
- Utilities-Electric generation and alternative energy
- Housing and Real Estate Development
- Business Services
Collectively, our professional team is substantial and we are
ready to provide our financing services to companies who see and
are capable of taking advantage of the opportunities offered in
the sub-Saharan African markets.
Challenges Facing The Region
Equal to the region’s business potential and opportunities
are its challenges. Before opportunities can flourish, the
region’s markets must address a combination of prevailing
adverse economic, business and financial issues unique to it.
The most important challenging issue in our view is having
access to sufficient and adequate private capital inflows for
continued economic and business growth. This issue has several
underlying contributing factors, they being government rules and
regulations, management and professional services capabilities.
We are cognizant that these items have the potential to be
issues in every transaction that we do in sub-Saharan markets.
Therefore, it is our policy and goal to reduce unreasonable
risk, to the extent possible, providing our capital sources with
the confidence to invest and lend in the markets of the region.
We always take into consideration effective mitigating
strategies that conquer potential adverse conditions and
circumstances in connection with our financial advisory
The following is the general description of categorical
issues and our policy and approach for overcoming them.
Private Capital Sourcing
Historically, sub-Saharan Africa has not had its share of
global capital for developing and maintaining vibrant economies
and markets. This is as a result of internal issues which
created skepticism and a lack of confidence for offshore lenders
and investors in sub-Saharan Africa. We realize the concerns
capital sources have relative to sub-Saharan Africa.
Consequently, we recruit, inform and maintain relations with
significant capital sources for private placements for the
sub-Saharan markets. This is based upon a policy of establishing
mutual trust and by extending our commitment and dedication to
quality services that include covering our clients’ environment,
industry and company conditions and circumstances.
Government Rules and Regulations
Compared to other developing regions, sub-Saharan Africa has
subjected foreign investment to excessive and discriminatory
regulation. We maintain quality access to economic and business
research and data and quality government relations resources for
understanding the impact of applicable government rules and
regulations on our clients’ transactions. We consistently take
this into account with the objective of mitigating any adverse
Management and Professional Services Capabilities
We understand and recognize the invaluable function that
quality management and professional services personnel
contributes to the enterprise and the market system. Management
and professional services personnel is an extremely important
consideration in a financing decision, therefore, the company’s
officers and directors should realize that inadequate, or
unqualified management in any aspect of its business, in
relation to executing the objectives, goals and strategy of the
business plan, could result in a denial of its financing
request. We review in-depth the organizational structure,
backgrounds and experience profiles of the management and
professional services support personnel of our clients. As a
result, we devote a substantial amount of advise and strategy to
the company concerning its management in order to positively
affect its corporate financing plans.
