About

Cresco is a boutique financial advisory firm. Our key service is to obtain project finance for project promoters in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is underpinned by developing projects from concept to financial draw-down through the myriad complex of investor and financier requirements. Cresco provides the opportunity to move your project up the value curve from concept to operation, by applying the specialist project financing expertise - including financial, commercial and project management skills - that your projects need to rise to their full potential. Our Team assists project promoters and sponsors to develop their project with financier’s considerations in mind from the start, enabling the most effective project development cycle to be implemented. Cresco has, since 2005, been bridging the gap between a concept and a bankable Project – assisting project developers, financial institutions and contractors, by drawing on a wide range of project development and financing experience to ensure financial close and implementation of major capital projects across multiple sectors. The project development continuum, from concept through feasibility analysis, finance structuring, funding and construction to operation, is a complex, intricate and multi-staged process where the promoter and other project participants require continuous specialist support. With an approach of using early-stage analysis to guide the project’s development, Cresco provides this specialist support and utilises its significant expertise and skilled resources to support the entire project development process. It provides a broad range of services to clients engaged in the acquisition, development or financing across a range of industries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Established in 2005 on a philosophy of entrepreneurial thinking, Cresco offers its clients advice on niche project finance solutions and provides transactional project development and implementation support outside of traditional balance sheet finance solutions.
