Centum, $29 million, Senior lender

Sep 30, 2017

Standard Bank provided funding for services and infrastructure for the development of the Two Rivers Project - a master planned precinct in Nairobi, Kenya, which is currently still under development. It is set to become the region’s premier retail, commercial, leisure and residential destination. The development will incorporate a retail, entertainment and lifestyle centre, Grade A offices, three and five-star hotels, conferencing facilities, a residential offering and medical facilities. This dual-currency transaction was equally split between USD and KES. It enhanced the local franchise and was the largest land facility in the Real Estate Finance division. Centum is East Africa's leading investment company. As an investment channel, they provide investors with access to a portfolio of inaccessible, quality and diversified investments. Listed on the Nairobi Securities Exchange and Uganda Securities Exchange, their key objective is to consistently generate market-beating returns by building extraordinary enterprises throughout Africa. The business maintains focus through eight distinct business lines: Real Estate & Infrastructure, Financial Services, FMCG, Power, Education, ICT, Agribusiness and Health. Many African economies continue to grow at higher rates than other regions around the world and together with our investment banking and infrastructure funding expertise, we move our clients forward, making progress possible.
