Supporting African development is a fundamental element in our ﬁnancing approach.
ATF supports trade and economic growth by providing additional liquidity to traditional lenders so as to increase their lending capacity on carefully selected projects, and consequently providing international access to funding for borrowers.
Trade assets are selected across a variety of sectors in order to maintain an appropriate level of diversiﬁcation whilst aiming for the strongest impact.
Trade assets involve African imports and exports as well as intra-regional trade along pre-established development criteria.
We believe ATF is an efﬁcient conduit for development agencies, multilaterals and commercial banks to inject liquidity in the African region.
