Travant Capital announces name change, strengthens services
The firm, which has recently renamed Alpha African Advisory (AAA) according to the Chief Executive Officer of AAA, Sanyade Okoli, would provide financial advisory, capital raising, and gateway services.
Speaking at a press briefing to announce the name change in Lagos at the weekend, Okoli, explained that the firm builds on its existing strong presence in Sub-saharan Africa to serve its rapidly expanding client interests across West Africa in a fully integrated way.
She noted that strong long-term economic fundamentals have continued to support the position of several local companies’ ability to attract foreign capital over the long-term thus reinforcing the firm’s strategic plans to continue to roll out unique services and maintain relationships with all stakeholders.
According to her, the transition to AAA has been effected in a seamless manner, with the core Travant leadership team and staff retained as employees of Alpha African Advisory.
She added that the existence of AAA and other financial advisory firms in Nigeria is indicative of the huge economic and commercial potential in Nigeria as one of the top five investment destinations in Africa, which has recorded a significant amount of capital inflows over the last five years.
Commenting on the new development, the Chief Executive Officer of Alpha African Advisory, Sanyade Okoli, said “We have a very proactive approach to doing business and are constantly thinking of ways to improve the services we provide to our customers while ensuring that the firm stays dynamic.
The evolution of Alpha African further advances the firm’s focus to become a truly pan-African institution focused on providing first-class advisory services to local and international players across the private and public sector spectrum.
“Nigeria has one of the largest economies in Africa, buoyed largely by the emergent opportunities in infrastructure development and consumer spending driven mostly by a population of over 180 million people which is expected to expand to 200 million by 2019.
“Alpha African Advisory’s service offering is designed to support the strategic objectives of its growing client base, ensuring appropriate synergies between international leading practices and the realities of the local operating landscape, as companies seek to exploit the inherent opportunities in our markets.
“With a client pool ranging from large public sector entities to mid-sized private sector enterprises, Alpha African Advisory is strategically positioned to act as the first choice partner in the provision of select professional financial services.
The company has been involved in transactions across several sectors, which include financial services, telecommunications, infrastructure & transportation, real estate, and oil & gas, amongst others.,” she added.
