Debt primary markets
Debt Primary Markets and Securitization

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.
