African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM) has appointed Wanjiku Mugane as a Senior Advisor in Kenya. 

Based in Nairobi, Mugane will be working closely with the AIIM investment team, delivering market insights and supporting the deal pipeline.  

Mugane is co-founder and Executive Director of Eagle Africa Capital Partners, a corporate finance advisory and patient capital investing firm. 

Prior to this, she was the East Africa CEO of Standard Chartered Securities and co-founder of First Africa Group, providing cross-border corporate finance advisory.
 
Commenting on her appointment, Wanjiku Mugane said: “I’m looking forward to working with Africa’s pre-eminent infrastructure investment manager and utilising my expertise in the East African capital markets and region to contribute to their growth strategy.”
 
Jurie Swart, Chief Executive Officer of AIIM, added: “Wanjiku’s appointment reinforces our deep operational experience on the ground in Kenya and brings an expert new perspective to the table. Her impressive background paired with her deep understanding of the investment landscape in Kenya, makes her a terrific addition to AIIM as we seek to broaden our capabilities in the region. We are thrilled to welcome her to the team.”
 
“East Africa continues to be one of the fastest growing regions in the world with an estimated growth rate of 6.2% in 2019. To sustain this strong performance the region needs to continue to unlock investment in its infrastructure and AIIM is committed to seizing the opportunities this presents for its partners, investors and communities it operates in. Following the successful close and exit of Kipeto Wind Farm, we have invested in BBOXX New Generation Utility in Kenya and are shortlisted on the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway PPP, illustrating our commitment to the region.”
