De-risking the World's Future Growth Engine

In our 27-year history as a Chamber of Business, the latest range of risk insurance instruments is a major leap forward for Canadian institutional investors and African countries - standing to unlock billions in investment capital.

On Thursday 20 May 2021 leaders from the financial sectors and governments like convened to discuss the role of ATI to unlock growth on the African continen in partnership with Canadian investors and financiers (View the Full Program).
ATI facilitates inward investment in Africa by providing insurance against trade and investment risks. We were delighted to welcome the top leadership to the Chamber and are proud to count ATI as a member.
ATI is Africa's only multilateral investment and credit insurer and as of 31 December 2020 it had supported trade and investments into Africa valued at over US$66 billion since inception and for FY2020, ATI recorded US$6.3 billion in Gross Exposures and US$411 million in equity.

ATI’s African Member states contribute, along with international governments, multilaterals and the private sector, to the pool of capital underwriting investments, without holding any influence over ATI operations. The Nairobi-based multilateral is rated "A/stable" by S&P, and "A3/Stable" by Moody's.

'It has become increasingly clear that to achieve “the Africa we want” the role of private sector must become central in mobilizing the needed resources. Alliances like this one present excellent opportunities to address the development challenges facing our region.'

   - Manuel Moses, Chief Executive Officer, ATI

‘During my career on Bay Street, it was clear solutions were needed to unlock the billions of investable capital in Canada. ATI has since developed a suite of products that in my view has dramatically changed the landscape in recent years’                                       

– Deepak Dave, Chief Risk Officer, ATI

‘ATI is a game-changer. From discussions with private equity and pension fund representatives, it is clear that ATI has the potential to ensure both the perceived and real risks on the continent are well-managed; ensuring investment committees can proceed on deals that until recently may have been deemed too risky’                 

    – Sebastian Spio-Garbrah, Chair of the Board
