The Company

Our Client- Afreximbank (headquartered in Cairo, Egypt) is a Trade Finance Bank established for the purpose of financing, promoting and expanding Intra-African and Extra-African Trade. The Bank was established through an agreement signed by member states and multilateral organisations and a charter that governs its corporate structure. In addressing the gaps in Intra-African Trade, the Bank has set up an Investment Holding company - Fund for Africa's Export Development (FUNFED), under its Equity Investment Programme.

The set-up of FUNFED is complementary to the Bank's two major initiatives in the areas of Intra- African Trade and Export Development. The ability to provide equity financing to key companies in the value chain of critical industries and sectors will significantly increase the probability of success in delivering on the Bank’s development priorities and building up the Bank's business volumes under the main pillars of the Intra African Trade (Create, Connect and Deliver) and Industrialization/Export Development Strategies (Catalyse, Produce, Trade).


The long term objective of FUNFED is the provision of equity capital and related financial, non-financial and support services targeted at operators in Africa’s tradable and support sectors, with emphasis on activities that will promote and facilitate intra African trade and value added exports (goods and services).
