We have been extremely fortunate in building outstanding relationships with our clients. Below are some of the comments they express about working with the team at afm consulting.

“afm consulting is filling a long overdue niche in legal, financial and marketing services as the founder has that rare combination of a Community Development background and passion with legal experience and expertise in several areas of finance, especially in the growing area of Alternative Banking and Finance. There is no doubt that the civil society organisations have an advocate in afm consulting for the linkages between the community and the urban world of complex finance.”

Aziza Atta advised us on the structuring and documentation of the Kuwait Commercial Markets Complex Company Sukuk. It was a complex transaction from an Alternative Capital Markets perspective and needed to be in compliance with English, Kuwaiti and Bahrain law. Aziza handled the transaction with utmost professionalism and was a pleasure to work with. We very much look forward to working with her and the rest of the team at afm consulting on future transactions.

African economies are growing fast and present a unique opportunity for Alternative Finance given their infrastructure needs. The alternative finance sector in Nigeria is gaining ground, particularly with the recent release of the non interest banking guidelines from the Central Bank of Nigeria. Gulf and Chinese investors, amongst others can facilitate the development of this area through Alternative Investment Bonds (Sukuk). Due to their global experience of the alternative finance markets, we work closely with afm consulting to facilitate the entry of international investors into this market. afm consulting provides us with useful and timely advice that ensures that we maximise the Alternative Finance opportunities in Nigeria.”

Aziza Atta has advised us on numerous alternative finance structures. These structures have often been multi-jurisdictional in nature and have required international Alternative finance expertise. Aziza has always provided us with the solutions sought in order to move transactions forward in a very user-friendly manner. We look forward to working with afm consulting on further projects.
