#OutstandingBrands2021: Annan Capital Partners – redefining Africa’s wealth and impact investing sector


Over the last decade, private financial flows to Africa have grown steadily accounting for about 70 % growth rate. As private flows increase and traditional Official Development Assistance declines, Africa needs to harness this increased private investment or alternative investment options to address socio-economic challenges on the continent.

Though this market remains nascent in Africa, impact investment serves as a major contributor to sustainable development and socio-economic growth on the continent.  To support the growth and sustainability of the sector within the region, Annan Capital Partners has played an active role in the sector’s development by identifying impact investment opportunities and sustainable projects in emerging and developing markets. With a team of local and international experts, our goal is to bridge the gap between investors and investment opportunities across the continent.

Annan Capital Partners (ACP) was established in 2012 by Roberta Annan and operated under the name Roberta Annan Consulting Ltd. until 2019 when the name was changed to Annan Capital Partners. Based in Accra, we are a homegrown African entity committed to the growth and development of Africa’s burgeoning markets; creative economy, energy, health, education, real estate, agribusiness, technology sectors.
