Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank (TDB)
Established in 1985, the Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank (TDB), formerly the PTA Bank, is a multilateral, treaty-based development financial institution, with assets of over US$ 5 billion. The Bank’s mandate is to finance and foster trade, regional economic integration and sustainable development, through trade finance, project and infrastructure finance, asset management and business advisory services. In the past five years, TDB’s shareholder base has grown from 19 to 35 members, including 22 Member States from across COMESA, EAC and SADC, 2 non-African member countries and 11 institutional investors. During the same period, shareholder equity funds increased by 150%, annual net profits by 100%, and non-performing loans were halved. TDB currently has regional offices in Nairobi, Harare and Addis Ababa, and principle offices in Bujumbura and Port-Louis.
