Political leaders in African countries are increasingly asking TBI to support them to attract transformational investment into their countries. While there are pools of capital that could potentially be invested in African economies, much of such investment remains underutilized. A major challenge is the lack of bankable projects emerging from African countries.
For a large number of bankable projects in transformational sectors to emerge, African Governments need to facilitate the emergence of these projects and increase their engagement with potential investors. This facilitation needs to extend from the pre-ideation state (i.e. sector development strategies) through to ideation, project preparation, investor sourcing and financing support. Followed by ongoing aftercare and feedback to inform the amendment of sector development strategies and the enabling environment.
TBI is supporting the Government of Ghana with its drive to attract investments into key sectors of the economy including agri-processing, value adding manufacturing, mining and processing of extractives and digitization.
We now seek to appoint a Senior Investment Advisor, Ghana to focus on facilitating large bespoke transformational investments of into these presidential priority areas.
