Amethis plan to increase their stake in CIEL to 24.9% during 2015. This not only gives them an instant footprint in a range of financial institutions – in addition to their existing bank investments in e.g. Ghana and Kenya , but also a direct investment in a private equity fund manager. As their press release states: ‘The two groups expect to generate additional business opportunities, share best practices and pool purchases through a systematic cooperation between their respective units.’

And from Amethis Managing Partner Laurent Demey: ‘This transaction is the first milestone of a successful expansion plan for CIEL Finance. Our network, expertise and track record in the financial sector in Sub-Saharan Africa will serve the consolidation and expansion of its subsidiaries so as to foster the emergence of a leading pan African financial group.’ Source: Africa Assets
