Growth In The Energy Sector

Africa is our home, and we are committed to driving the sustainable development of our continent and her people. With the ever-growing need for reliable access to electricity and sustainable energy solutions on the continent, we have been actively supporting a variety of projects that we believe will significantly contribute to the goal of achieving long-term energy security for all Africans.  Our role in driving energy transition includes providing full banking solutions across multiple products, sector expertise to support our clients, investing in energy infrastructure development and developing an innovative platform for people to access energy solution providers. We believe that there is potential to unlock further growth and innovation in the energy sector and encourage others to join us in powering positive impact by working together to help meet Africa’s energy needs. 

In line with our ambition of becoming the leading enabler of energy and infrastructure on the African continent, we are proud to have sponsored the annual Africa Energy Forum 2023 which was held in Nairobi, Kenya on 20-23 June. The event presented us with the opportunity to engage and partner with key stakeholders, enabling us to us to play a role in driving sustainable and inclusive growth in Africa, and moving the energy industry forward.
