About Us

Financial Access is a financial services firm, focused exclusively on frontier and emerging markets. We provide consulting, financial advisory and financing services to diverse clients including (impact) investors, PE firms, banks, specialised non-bank or microfinance institutions, international donor organisations and NGOs, development finance institutions and private companies.

Our emphasis is on financial sector development.  We design, build and support the development of sustainable finance businesses, financial products and institutional capacity in areas such as SME finance, Agri-finance at farmer and higher value chain levels, as well as multi-sector supply chain finance solutions. We support financing and investment transactions in the financial sector.

We originate from the ING Group and were taken private in 2007. Our background is strongly biased to financial services operations, and we have successfully executed more than 250 assignments in over 40 countries. We aim to create sustainable impact and maintain environmentally and socially responsible financing, governance and advisory standards.

We are headquartered in Amsterdam and have operational offices in Washington, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Bangkok, Nairobi and Kampala.

Our 3 focus areas

Agri-Finance Solutions

We help small-scale farms and agri-businesses to get appropriate and climate-smart finance, in the agricultural sectors and more broadly, through our own operating companies in Africa and Southeast Asia serving smallholder and SME clients.  We also provide consulting support in these areas to donors and sponsors (see FACS).

SME Working-Capital

We make working capital easy for SMEs in East Africa.  Our supply chain finance companies address the Missing Middle issues with practical access to financing in East Africa (see FACTS).

Finance & Investment Advisory

We also advise financial institutions – management, owners or regulators — on lending, risk, finance and operational issues.  We work with investors, financiers and regulators in financial services to improve the commercial viability and impact of their businesses and to get deals accomplished.
