While managing systemic societal and climate risks

Who we are

ASFI is a sustainable finance transactional intermediary in Africa. We design and implement programmes that address the scalability roadblocks to accelerate finance for Africa’s transition to a low-carbon, socially inclusive, and resilient economy.

To drive systemic change towards a low-carbon, socially inclusive, and resilient economy, we convene and build ecosystems at the intersection of financial, relational, intellectual, transactional and human capital. We leverage the knowledge clusters to identify institutional and market barriers to sustainable finance, develop options to overcome such obstacles and foster better alignment between capital and sustainability levers that can be deployed to generate long-term returns.
