Aguilar Capital Markets Ltd is a Canadian registered investment banking boutique firm that is focused on providing financing solutions to Africa domiciled entities. The African financial services sector is a patchwork of financial systems at widely divergent stages of maturity from underdeveloped markets on one end to world class, fully developed systems on the other end of the spectrum. Most African countries’ financial systems fall somewhere in the middle of these disparities with respect to the development of their financial sectors. These disparities create funding gaps that advisory firms like Aguilar Capital have identified as opportunities to act as financial intermediaries to facilitate funding accessibility where the local financial sector cannot or is unwilling to provide the financial service solutions that private sector participants such as SME’s and large corporations may be in need.
Aguilar Capital enjoys relationships with a global selection of Development Financial Institutions (DFI’s), Emerging Markets Focused Credit Funds, Emerging Markets Focused Private Equity Funds, the Ex-South Africa Operations of South African Banks, High Net-Worth Individuals and Family Offices. These relationships have formed the rolodex of investors that Aguilar Capital Markets has cultivated to provide the funding solutions needed by its African client firms.
Metalco Industries retained Aguilar Capital to resolve a long-standing capital challenge. Aguilar Capital’s solution was designed to help their business access funds they could use to refinance onerously structured local currency debt and acquire Plant & Equipment to modernize and expand the business’ production capacity. Metalco Industries was the recipient of a $20 Million USD syndicated debt facility co-funded by The International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the OPEC Fund for International Development.
