  • Help develop services to offer clients to solve access to finance issues and increase private sector investment, including means to adjust risk-return profiles for equity investments and debt financing.
  • Assist on upcoming bids for donor-funded projects involving financial markets and access to finance.
  • Deliver high-quality service on time and within budget.


  • Expertise in finance, including equity and debt finance, in a developing economy context.
