Capital markets

OO&K has a strong capital markets practice where we advise both issuers and underwriters on public and private securities offerings. Capital markets play an important role in mobilizing large-scale and long-term finance in Africa. Countries across the continent have shifted to top gear their economic development to meet expectations of their citizens and the roles that financial institutions play in
the pivotal process. Capital Markets also play an important role towards emergence of financial hubs in Sub-Saharan Africa. Financial innovations are delivering fast and sustainable growth to businesses and individuals as well as complement bank financing to provide large-scale and longterm solutions.

Our team comprehends the complexity of regulation and are professionally equipped to advise both local and foreign clients on the listing process and relevant regulatory processes.
