Introduction of Our Firm

Incorporated in 1989, Sterling Merchant Finance Ltd is an investment banking and financial services firm. The firm provides a full spectrum of investment banking and high caliber financial and economic advisory services to governments, international organizations and corporations active in emerging markets.

In pursuit of its mission to further economic development by encouraging the growth of productive private enterprises, Sterling Merchant Finance Ltd uses its specialized knowledge of emerging markets to provide a range of sophisticated services to guide its private and public sector clients toward long term growth.

Sterling Merchant Finance's sister company is Sterling International Group, Inc, an international consulting and project management company also active in emerging countries. The Group provides economic development solutions to businesses and governments worldwide. The Group has successfully completed hundreds of assignments including surveys, studies and evaluations, market researches, sector and country analyses, and technical assistance designs.

Sterling Growth Fund is the Group's off-shore unit investment trust, focused on African equities and projects. Given the reluctance of banks to increase their exposure to some African countries and the shortage of equity capital, the Fund was created to open export-oriented and infrastructure business opportunities.
