Excellence in leadership in Africa 2020: Deutsche Bank

Awards for Excellence 2020

Deutsche Bank’s commitment to Africa’s economic development began long before the Covid-19 pandemic struck, but the bank’s expertise in infrastructure and structured finance will be essential in supporting the continent’s recovery and in helping to address the long-term concerns holding back development. 

Foreign investment is likely to dwindle in the ensuing economic downturn, but the German bank has maintained its commitment. As recently as May, it announced the co-financing of two new regional hospitals and five medical units in Côte d’Ivoire.

Its head of emerging markets structuring is Claire Coustar.
