Founded in 1997 by Baroness Lynda Chalker, the UK’s longest-serving minister for Africa, our origins are unique.
Established with the aim of supporting investors and companies operating in Africa, internationally, we were at the forefront of promoting the continent as a place in which commercial activity could result in both attractive financial returns and a positive development impact.
Over the past 25 years, our focus and services have developed in tandem with Africa’s commercial evolution.
Our sectoral exposure has become increasingly diversified, as new and dynamic industries have emerged across the continent.
We are proud to have supported the growth of these sectors, counting many of the most well-recognised investors in industries such as development finance, renewable energy, telecommunications, and transportation and logistics, as clients.
At its core, however, Africa Matters Limited’s approach remains the same. We are committed to building on our history of providing clients with exceptional service, supporting them to achieve their operational goals, and thereby delivering value for both shareholders and host African economies and societies.
Our vision is to promote sustainable and equitable investment in Africa.
