We lead transactions for Africa’s most innovative businesses and local and global investors, having closed >$1 billion of capital over the past 10 years. We work closely with >500 global venture capital and private equity firms, family offices, development finance institutions, and HNWIs to deploy capital and develop new financial products, for example blended finance, structured credit, and off-balance sheet securities.

As a senior member of our Capital Markets team, you will lead a portfolio of client projects, managing teams across each project and leading on investor relationships. You will work closely with our Principals and Partners to originate new business and co-create new partnerships with major global players, for example institutional investors looking to develop Africa portfolios and global development organizations creating new blended finance structures to support emerging sectors (i.e., e-mobility, health-tech). This role is a 2+ year career-track role, with promotion potential to Principal and Partner. Examples of our past work include raising Series A venture rounds for African FinTechs, co-creating Venture Builder, a blended finance fund to scale solar energy access, and structuring debt raises across agriculture and healthcare.

You will join Open Capital at an exciting time – we are seeking to achieve broad, ambitious growth goals, and leverage our strong international brand in the impact investing and frontier market space. As we look to deepen our reach in the broader African market, there will continue to be many opportunities to engage in project work regionally. The right candidate should be excited and genuinely motivated by the challenging strategic and financial questions we answer for our clients.
