We act as a catalyst that attracts the investment interest from pension funds, insurance firms and other long-term investors.
Domestic capital mobilized from Pension Funds
First-Time Issuers Accessing Capital Markets
Long-term jobs enabled in Nigeria
Infrastructure projects reaching financial close
InfraCredit provides local currency guarantees to enhance the credit quality of debt instruments issued to finance creditworthy infrastructure assets in Nigeria that conform with its eligibility criteria.
This entity is necessary because long term capital required by infrastructure entities/projects to be commercially successful is not available from the domestic banking market. InfraCredit’s guarantees would act as a catalyst to attract investment interests from pension funds, insurance firms and other long-term investors, thereby deepening the Nigerian debt capital markets.
Its successful operation will address the constraints facing the Nigerian pension market and motivate their involvement in investing in long term bonds to finance infrastructure assets.
Our mission is to successfully unlock the potential for long-term local currency infrastructure finance in Nigeria through innovative credit enhancement solutions on an evolving basis, creating value for our stakeholders and being the best at what we do.
Our vision is to be a catalyst and the most trusted partner in the attraction of long term capital into infrastructure finance in Nigeria.
