What We Do

ABAX enhances the Enterprise Value and the Investor Value of its clients through the use of International Financial Centres (IFCs) and business hubs. To do so, it has developed an integrated set of advisory, corporate and business services which leverages the benefits of conducting business from these IFCs.

Our core expertise lies in the structuring and administration of cross-border investments and transactions in emerging markets, with a special focus on Africa.

We deliver solutions to businesses, institutions and high-net-worth individuals along a wide range of competencies:  Corporate Management; Private Wealth Services; Corporate Finance Advisory; Governance & Board Services; Financial Analysis, Control & Reporting; Fund & Investor Services; ICT; and Tax Services.

We are a culturally diverse and bilingual team (French/English) of 250, mainly made up of professionals and university graduates in the fields of accounting, finance, company secretarial, law, management and technology.

ABAX is an ISO 27001 certified company and our Fund & Investor Services Line of Service has been successfully audited for ISAE 3402 Type 2. We are also an ACCA and ICAEW Approved Employer.

Our Value Proposition

We focus on adding value. We do so by partnering with our clients at each stage of their growth and offering them solutions that are uniquely crafted for them:

  • From advising on their investment structuring at the start, to setting up their company or fund and administering it;
  • From making sure they reap operational efficiencies to taking care of their compliance and improving board and corporate governance;
  • From assisting them on their corporate finance advisory needs to helping with their tax matters;
  • And from taking on board their financial and accounting requirements to taking care of their wealth management and succession planning.

We have built capacity across a range of competencies so that our clients can focus on their core business whilst we take over their support and administrative duties with efficiency, diligence, confidentiality and integrity.
