President & Chief Executive Officer – AFC

About AFC
Africa Finance Corporation (AFC) is an African-led international finance institution established in 2007 to bridge Africa’s infrastructure investment gap through the provision of debt and equity fi nance, project development, and technical and financial advisory services. AFC has invested over USD4.5billion in infrastructure projects in 28 countries across Africa, with a particular focus on power, transport, telecommunications, heavy industries and natural resources (oil, gas and mining).

17 African entities have signed AFC’s charter – Benin, Cape Verde, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Djibouti, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zambia. AFC’s shareholders include the Central Bank of Nigeria, African fi nancial institutions and other industrial investors.
