Corporate finance advisory
As Africa’s economies gather momentum, there is an increasing need for expert advisory services to support Asian corporates and institutions who are investing there. In addition to local domestic pools of capital, African corporates and institutions also require access to international capital markets to support their growth ambitions. Standard Bank, through its Hong Kong and Beijing offices are able to facilitate these requirements.
