Simba International Finance

We are a corporate finance advisory firm providing services to companies and government agencies concerning their ventures primarily in sub-Saharan African Markets.

Our Focus

Frontier and Emerging Market Opportunities As the gross domestic product (GDP) for certain Sub-Saharan African countries continue to grow at least 5% per annum per year, the business potential and opportunities for sub-Saharan Africa will also continue to grow in industries and sectors. For example, we see significant need and activity for the following areas:

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 activity.

The following is a description of key categorical issues and our policy and approach for overcoming them.

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 affect.

Management, Governance and Professional Services Capabilities:  We understand and recognize the invaluable function that quality management, governance and professional services personnel contributes to the enterprise and the market system. Management, governance 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, directors and professional services support personnel of our clients. As a result, we devote a substantial amount of review, analysis and strategy to the company concerning its management in order to positively affect its corporate financing plans.
