Financial Access is involved in a number of financing activities, which can be sectioned into:
1) Principal Financing
Financial Access provides financing for its customers from its subsidiary FACTS East Africa B.V. (FACTS). FACTS is a supply chain finance company with operations in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. FACTS is specialized in Invoice Financing and aims to satisfy the working capital needs of entrepreneurs and SMEs that are difficult to obtain through commercial banks and other financial institutions.
2) Financial Advisory
Financial Access provides financial advisory services such as capital raising, transactional support and (re-)structuring of financing. We act on behalf of investors, sponsors or management of our client institutions to provide access to financing, whether debt, equity, or some combination. As financial advisers on a transactional basis, we act in support of all phases in a financing process, including:
- Strategic advice on the availability and pro’s and con’s of different financing forms
- Assessments of a client’s readiness for investment or financing
- Pre-financing management support
- Deal assessment and structuring (scenarios, modelling)
- Partner/investor searches (investor identification, approach and presentations)
- Documentation preparation (offering documents, info memos)
- Due diligence management
- Execution support.
As a banking-based firm, we maintain an extensive international network of financiers and investment institutions — international, regional, and local in our focus markets — who are keen on identifying opportunities to deploy capital in their chosen fields. Financial Access matches these investment interests to specific client needs.
We maintain especially close relationships with development finance institutions (DFIs), as well as private institutional investors (Private Equity Investors, specialist funds, hedge funds) and banks in our core markets of Africa and Southeast Asia, and in our sector specializations of financial services, agribusiness, and renewable energy.
