ATIDI African Trade & Investment Development Insurance

Lead Sponsor

ATIDI is a pan-African multilateral financial institution established in 2001 by African States. ATIDI was launched with the technical and financial support from the World Bank Group. It has also benefitted from the capital injection, the financial and technical support from the African Development Bank, AfDB which joined ATIDI as a member in 2013 and since then has supported several African countries’ membership in the organization. This is a token of the dynamic relationship between ATIDI and Africa’s leading development institution. In addition to AfDB , ATIDI has developed strong partnerships with premier development partners, notably the European Investment Bank and KfW Development Bank. ATIDI has grown into a market leader for risk mitigation in Africa, establishing itself as Africa’s primary trade and investment insurer and one of Africa’s largest Development Finance Institutions.

ATIDI provides political and credit risk insurance to companies, investors and lenders doing business in Africa. For over a decade, ATIDI has maintained an “A” rating for Financial Strength and Counterparty Credit by Standard & Poor’s, and in 2019 obtained a second A3/Stable rating from Moody’s, which was later revised to A3/Positive in 2023. ATIDI’s membership includes 24 African Member States and 13 institutional shareholders. Besides its head office in Nairobi, ATIDI currently has offices in Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
