Capital Mobilisation Through Local Currency Guarantees

Local currency guarantees are a game-changer – they offer a way of bridging the massive infrastructure funding gap in Sub-Saharan Africa that stands somewhere between USD 68 – 108 billion. Guarantees are effective in putting the control back in the hands of the local business ecosystem. As the capacity of local markets grows, they are increasingly becoming part of the solution. But there are still barriers that need addressing, like credit risk, high interest rates, and investor confidence.

In this first episode of the CD Insights Podcast, we explore how Cardano Development is teaming up with other industry experts to push through those barriers to transform the financial markets of frontier economies. We are joined by five industry experts, Joost Zuidberg, CEO Cardano Development, Chinua Azubike, CEO InfraCredit, Lasitha Perera, Co-founder and Director of the Development Guarantee Group, Maheen Rahman, CEO InfraZamin Pakistan, and Janice Kotut, Managing Director PIDG InfraSolutions. Each participant speaks about their in-depth experience in what it takes to mobilise capital into infrastructure and provides practical ideas and solutions to create successful transactions and build up strong, inclusive economies.
