African Trade Insurance Agency (ATI) is a pan-African institution that provides risk solutions to companies, investors, and lenders interested in doing business in Africa. With deep roots in Africa, ATI is best positioned to understand and assess the risks here – and to help mitigate them. As a result, we offer robust risk solutions to our clients. Our international financial partners have come to rely on our assessments because of our credibility, financial strength, and underwriting capacity.
Over the last few years, ATI has developed a broad expertise in the energy sector, with the help of the European Investment Bank (EIB) and KfW. While our energy solutions apply to all energy projects, both conventional and renewable, our products contribute to the realization of the UN’s SE4All initiative.
- We have deepened our expertise to insure renewable energy generation projects
- All our insurance solutions also apply to conventional energy
- We have developed the Regional Liquidity Support Facility (RLSF), with the support of KfW
Most lenders to an energy project will ask to mitigate the liquidity risk. Liquidity risk describes the risk that the debt cannot be serviced if the off-taker does not pay on time.
AEGF is an initiative of the European Investment Bank. It is part of the support that the EIB pledged to the United Nation’s Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All). Click here to read more.
