About Us

At Eczellon, we continuously seek to connect leaders – of corporations, governments and enterprises – primed for the next big thing, with ideas and the right capital, towards the creation and advancement of an economically vibrant and progressive African Story.

We see that, in Africa, we must work towards a setting where governments and institutions are enabled to create, build and sustain businesses that produce, as goods and services, solutions to issues faced by Africa and her people.Those businesses can be aided to be sustainable and lasting enterprises that create jobs, eradicate poverty and foster economic development.

At Eczellon, we believe the above mission is the essence of investment banking services.

Since our founding in 2011, Eczellon Capital has operated the business of investment banking, focusing on Corporate Finance and Advisory Services across select markets of Sub-Saharan Africa. We are licensed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Nigeria to operate as an Issuing House.

We continuously work with our clients to provide financing solutions which aid their objectives in meeting the strategic goals of their respective stakeholders. These include governments for which we have raised capital, through municipal debt issues, to fund various developmental initiatives. Between 2015 and date, Eczellon has been involved in over $300million debt capital market issues, in lead/active roles. We have also assisted on public-private-partnership (PPP) initiatives and other special project development and implementation. In 2017, we closed the first Green Bond issue of circa $90million to fund a PPP initiative for Environment Solutions in one of the States of Nigeria, a transaction which received the Most Innovative Deal of the Year award from the FMDQ OTC Exchange.

We have worked with corporations and other private sector clients in key sectors of the Nigerian, West and East African markets in capacities such as transaction advisors for the establishment of greenfield power generation; financial advisors and lead capital arrangers for oil & gas asset acquisitions; and implementation. We have advised on Mergers and Acquisitions in financial services – banking, mortgage banking and insurance – and on various structured financing in manufacturing, telecommunications and e-commerce, commercial real estate, agriculture, healthcare and education.

With our understanding of the nature of the market we operate in, we strive to deliver on the needs and objectives of our various stakeholders. Our stakeholders include local entities – governments and private – that require ideas and capital, and also investors – local and international – who require safe and high return investment opportunities to which to deploy their portfolios. Essentially, we are locally grounded and internationally-minded in our approach to business, investment, capital sourcing and deal structuring.

I have worked with firms, but none quite like Eczellon. The brilliance of their advisory services, combined with the elegance of their materials and delivery, is an uncommon but refreshing elevation of industry standard
