Local to global through
innovative banking


We are proud to have been awarded the sole mandate in support of Excellerate’s offshore bid for GS Associates, valued at £35.5 million.


We are proud to have acted as original lender and arranger on this transaction, in support of Excellerate’s bid for UK-based contract cleaning and support services provider, GS Associates (“GSA”). 

Building on our decade-long relationship with Excellerate – a leading facilities management company in South Africa operating across Africa and the Middle East – we structured a globally competitive and innovative financing solution tailored to their needs. This enabled them to expand into the UK market and achieve their vision of becoming a leading provider of integrated property solutions in the EMEA region.    

This transaction directly contributes to our vision of being the continent’s leading investment bank, highlighting our commitment to our local clients as they expand globally.

The bravery to imagine. That’s Africanacity.
