Corporate and investment banking at Stanbic Bank Uganda services a broad range of clients including local businesses and corporates
As Africa gathers momentum, there is an increasing need for expert advisory services to support corporates and institutions across the spectrum of corporate activity. Corporates and institutions are also making greater use of capital markets for their funding needs, which requires specialist technical advice and assistance to support growth. Our extensive footprint, combined with the expertise and experience of our teams, enable us to guide clients through challenging and complicated financial and regulatory requirements. We are a committed and attentive partner, supporting our clients throughout each transaction.
With the implementation of Basel III, the ability of banks to provide balance sheet funding is being reduced and becoming more expensive. As a result, capital-light products in areas like debt capital markets and securitisation are becoming increasingly important. Infrastructure development and improvement projects are a priority across the continent. With infrastructure project finance, after initial bridge financing or retained cash flow, long-term funding solutions need to be in place. Capital markets are expected to drive most of those projects, with debt capital market or securitisation funding generally best placed to serve this need. With an extensive presence in the East Africa region and experience in the sectors most relevant to its growth and development, Stanbic Bank provides versatile solutions to our clients.
Our relevant sector expertise, detailed understanding of our client’s businesses and collaboration across other specialist areas with the group enables us to provide the most appropriate funding solutions to our clients. The team services corporates, private equity sponsors, governments and state-owned entities. We can provide financing across the entire capital structure – senior unsecured, senior secured, subordinated, mezzanine and redeemable preference shares. We have the willingness to structure and fund large underwriting requirements that are typical in large acquisition finance and leveraged finance transactions.
