Think RMB.

Deal footprint

Think Africa. Think RMB

We believe Africa is the new frontier and investment destination.

RMB believes in the African growth story. Over the past decade African economic output has more than tripled; Africa’s share of global fdi flows has been improving year on year; and the continent has seen a rapid rate of urbanisation and a growing consumer class. The ongoing need for sustainable infrastructure and technology, coupled with the need for reliable financial services leads us to believe that Africa today holds the greatest overall investment potential for all frontier markets globally.

Our unique investor relationships in offshore markets provide us with strong distribution and syndication capabilities, and our sophisticated IT infrastructure, network of industry experts and specialists in corporate, treasury and investment banking support our endeavors in striving to offer our clients the best banking experience possible.

Raising capital can, however, be a daunting task in Africa, which is why potential investors need a reliable, on-the-ground financial services partner who understands the unique challenges and regulatory frameworks of doing business in Africa. RMB is that partner and gateway for investors in Africa.
