Mission and Values
Arise is a leading African boutique investment company owned by Norfund, NorFinance, FMO and Rabo Partnerships. We partner with sustainable banks, fintechs and non-banking financial institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa to help them become leaders in their markets. Our local knowledge, strong capital base, significant minority shareholdings and hands-on approach provides the support they need to become financially sustainable and strong contributors to the economies in which they operate, stimulating economic growth and job creation.
Our goal is to contribute to economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa and the prosperity of its people. We will achieve this by working to increase financial inclusion and employment, and by aiming to strengthen rural development and alleviate poverty.
By building strong, sustainable financial service providers, we will make a positive impact in Africa and achieve long-term market returns that go beyond stakeholder expectations. We aim to become a leading and trusted investment and development partner for independent financial service providers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
