Message from the Founder

Having worked over 25 years in the financial and banking sectors, financing export-related transactions for agricultural products such as coffee and cocoa, and imports of key commodities such as oil and cereals, and over 15 years in the insurance and housing sectors in Africa,

I recently decided to create PEACOCK INVESTMENTS in order to put all my experience at the disposal of corporations and governments to help find solutions dealing with the challenges confronting them in their day-to-day operations.

My goal is to assist in a world, as we know it today, which is globalized companies to stay competitive with economies inter-related and interdependent, with very fierce competition for financial resources procurement.

During my career at Citibank, I worked with dozens of countries, dealing with nationalities from all over the world and putting together complex transactions that contributed to helping countries and corporations achieve growth and development.

It is this experience that I would like to bring to our clients, corporations and governments to assist them solve their financial needs through innovative approaches and solutions.

My experience from the world financial environment, past and present, combined with my strong knowledge of the African continent and the business environment, puts me in a unique position to bring value to clients working from, within and into Africa. Indeed at PEACOCK INVESTMENTS, we can make a difference assisting customers in managing the tough tasks of doing business in Africa.

I am not only familiar with most of the cultures: American, European, Asian and African, but can also use these bridges established with all the business people and institutions I have met over the years and worked with during that time.

Africa is considered by many institutional investors as the last frontier for high yield investments, but also high risks, and it will be our job at PEACOCK INVESTMENTS to make sure that potential investors have the necessary advice and expertise that will help them achieve their desired level of risk/return ratio. We will provide interested investors with economic and financial information along with the right contacts in Africa, so that they can invest efficiently and profitably, with a strong control of the risks associated with doing business in Africa.

To governments and African corporations, I will avail the extensive network developed over the years,working onWall Street, at Metropolitan Insurance Co in New York, and with governments in Africa during my Citibank career to assist in developing the right business plans and financial mixes to solve their needs.

I have also developed an alliance with other selected companies in Cote d’Ivoire, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Morroco, Mali, and in the US to ensure a continental coverage and be in a position to effectively assist companies and clients in any area of the continent they wish to do business .

Finally, I have put together a select team of experienced staff and consultants whose sole objective will be to ensure that all your financial needs are fully satisfied.

Give us a chance and we will prove that we can help you achieve your goals of investing profitably and efficiently in Africa while keeping the risk-level acceptable or raising funds if you are an African government or corporation.

Thank you.

WHY AN AFRICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IN THE USA?

significantly underutilized source of important goods and services, employment and tax revenues for major cities in the United States

• The economic interests of virtually every major geographic
section of the United States and every major community in the country are served by a Chamber of Commerce... with the exception of the African business Community

• The African community in the United States suffers due to the
lack of a vital African-business community

• Existing African-owned businesses in the entire country are
Still restricted in their efforts to grow and expand
