With over a decade of experience in the East African market, Andile has established itself as a trusted partner for banks and financial institutions, creating jobs and driving economic growth in the region. The funding will enable Andile to further leverage its expertise and invest in new technologies, positioning the company as a leader in the region’s Capital Markets ecosystem, and contributing to increased financial stability and inclusiveness in East Africa.

Other Group companies include early-stage platform business FXFlow (SA, ), a FX exposure and risk management platform that creates value for importers and exporters in regulated markets, and Mesh (Netherlands, Mesh.trade) an institution-grade, decentralised, multi-sided Financial Markets platform that bridges the gap between TradFi, (the traditional world of Financial and Capital Markets), AltFi (a range of alternative, traditionally illiquid financial assets and investment instruments) and DeFi (the new world of Distributed Ledger Technology and Tokenomics).

Fourteen leading global development finance institutions (DFIs) based in Europe, the US and Africa are the investors in CPDIF and Brink says “this is the connected capital we have been looking for. We are proactively engaging with these investors to explore further opportunities to work together”.
