Project Management

 

The project development process from concept is a complex, intricate and multi- staged process where the promoter and other project participants require continuous specialist support.

We provide necessary resources and specialist expertise to support the entire project development process from the feasibility analysis, finance structuring, funding and construction to operation. We work with United Nations trained associates with over 20 years experience who coordinate the project management office to deliver developmental projects on turnkey basis.

We ensure a quick turnaround for transactions, without onerous conditions. We match every request to the most appropriate financing solution.

Structured Trade Finance (STF)

 

We developed a special STF model for the Sub-Sahara Africa Market.

Under the structure, we arrange the establishment of letters of credit and provide funding for the supplier. We work with the importer on a flexible remittance Guarantee Payment terms.

The imported goods are held under a joint venture agreement with a 3rd Party logistics firm fully underwritten by Lloyd’s Group up to a value of $20million per transaction.

We look for investors whose interest in the continent transcends short term profit  and who are committed to the continent’s growth and development.
