In our latest episode, Andrew speaks to Solomon Asamoah, CEO of the Ghana Infrastructure Investment (GIIF), an investment vehicle, initially capitalized at $250m, with a mandate to originate, structure, and invest in infrastructure-related projects across Ghana. Solomon is an investment professional with over 25 years of experience originating and executing transactions in both developed and developing markets. He has personally led over $5bn in transactions across the African continent.

 

Listen as they discuss what GIIF is, what they have done to date, and the areas of focus for the fund in the coming years. They explore how the global pandemic affected the fund’s goals to secure investment and what have been the most challenging aspects of the post-Covid period. Solomon also shares his views on the AfCFTA and what he sees as the possible material benefits for GIIF and other funds on the continent since its ratification, as well as what he considers to be top priorities for investors as the continent looks to ramp up recovery.
