Facilitating growth
through partnership


We are proud to have assisted Sasol as Sole Lead Arranger in the issuance of the largest Rand denominated listed bond in the South African debt capital markets in 2023, valued at R 2.5 Billion

We assisted Sasol, a global energy and chemicals company, to effectively market their credit and sustainability profile. This enabled them to attract more investors and a larger orderbook for this bond than the issuer’s previous auction in 2022, thereby allowing them to issue a greater volume at better pricing, despite the significant volume issued.

The substantial support from local investors, coupled with the strong pricing outcome showcases Sasol’s exceptional credit quality and robust balance sheet. This transaction also furthers Sasol’s strategy of diversifying its funding mix to better match its revenues.

This transaction is proof of the success that comes when we work together with our clients to support their ambitions.
