The key to growth in foreign markets
Although gearing has slowed globally, the demand for infrastructure remains high and cash flow prospects remain strong across a number of sectors in Africa and emerging markets. Also, strong government support is evident for power and infrastructure projects as Africa increases its capacity in the natural resources sector. Growth remains contingent on upgrades and development to facilities across power, roads, rail, ports and social infrastructure. The challenge for financial institutions is to provide competitive and sustainable financing solutions.
Standard Bank is the largest bank in Africa by assets and earnings. With broad transactional and commercial experience in Africa and selected emerging markets, we offer a full spectrum of project and export finance products and leading capabilities in Africa.
We have a proven ability to secure appropriate funds for our clients on the best possible terms. With long-standing experience in emerging markets and deep understanding of our clients, we match them to suitable investors. Also, with some traditional sources of debt capital across Africa now facing increased regulation and capital charges, Export Credit Agencies (ECA) funding solutions are going to become increasingly important as a source capital.
Where necessary, our team draws on the expertise of product teams and sector specialists across the full capability of Standard Bank to ensure our solutions are fit-for-purpose and appropriate to client need.
