History

For almost two decades, the African Alliance Group has been building a substantial pan-African investment banking platform.

We understand the need to build African markets from small or non-existent platforms to expand the base that will enable Africa to take its place among mainstream developing markets and capitalise on its abundant resources.

We build unit trusts where there are none, create bond markets and yield curves to price capital, research equities and bonds, manage pension funds and raise private equity for opportunities. Our trading funds aim to eliminate price inefficiencies, and our advisory business partners with local and international capital to create economic value.

After starting in Swaziland, our model has expanded to most parts of Africa. We are committed to building and developing local talent – this is a core value and the most essential ingredient of our success. We are equally committed to establishing and adapting our model to the rest of the continent over the next two decades.

In a world focused on short-term gains, our long-term commitment to build markets and people where we operate sets us apart. We understand that pioneering work is lengthy and difficult. Importantly, our shareholders fully support our long-term, multi-generational vision.
