Our Expertise

Arosba Capital Limited is a privately-owned boutique merchant bank dedicated to Africa. We provide corporate finance advisory, debt or equity financing solutions, in addition to wealth and asset management. 

Most merchant banks consider a transaction only after its banking feasibility study is complete. 

We employ a more comprehensive and pragmatic approach. We see ourselves as ‘global arrangers’, meaning we start working on transactions at very early stages and actively assist our clients with completing their feasibility studies. Then we prepare the information memorandum, the right marketing, select suitable financiers, raise funds, negotiate terms and conditions, and dutifully undertake the required administration. This includes finding reputable suppliers, and EPC contractors.

We believe in our unique approach and we strive to keep our clients’ interests first, always.



We raise and structure debt in regional or international financial markets. 

Our core aim is to deliver bespoke and flexible debt financing solutions, tailored to the specific needs of our clients. This means covering the full spectrum of short-term (import or export) through long-term (project) financing.

We are experts in working with Export Credit Agencies which set up financing solutions providing ‘pre-approval’ of the EPC contractors or the suppliers. We also possess an extensive track record for financing large-scale projects, such as: ports, airports, energy producers, mining companies and telecommunication providers.  

We hold trusted relationships with most local, regional, central and developmental banks. Further, we maintain close ties with many reputable institutional investors.
