What we do

Transaction support

We are well versed in the full financing processes of companies and organisations, thereby gaining a deep understanding of the funding needs and constraints from the private sector. Such hands-on experience provides us with deep insights into the opportunities and challenges of finance delivery, risk management, and alternatives to traditional debt financing instruments. Carnegie Consult provides support in development of financial business cases, investor selection, financing processes, negotiations and legal documentation. We bring in the needed financial expertise to provide advice on specific financial instruments and blended finance mechanisms that can be effectively applied to mobilise private sector investment.

What we do

Financial advisory

Carnegie Consult carries out numerous short- and long-term (international) assignments for international financial institutions, development banks, national governments and private sector organisations. We carry out feasibility and market scoping studies. Furthermore, we design, implement and manage financial instruments (debt, equity, guarantees, grants), funds, facilities and private sector development programs. Through our past experience, we have developed deep insight on how to assess financial risks within (micro-)financial institutions and (semi-public) organisations. As a result, we have a clear vision on the technicalities of public and private financing sources and mechanisms and understand why and how these can be applied in a local context. Past clients in financial delivery mechanisms in local financial markets include AfDB, EIB, KfW, Norad, and Sida.

What we do

Reviews and Evaluations

Carnegie Consult conducts impact studies, evaluations and policy reviews. We analyse, evaluate and support investments in the private sector (funds, financial institutions, SMEs and agribusinesses). We have conducted various evaluations of financial structures for funds, facilities and investments programs (for example FMO, BIO and the International Fund of Developing Countries (IFU) of Danida). We also evaluated the applicability of ancillary financial products, including instruments such as insurances to mitigate political or foreign exchange risks (TCX), guarantee products designed to mitigate the lack of collateral, projects in greenfield stages that often lack track record, and (project) finance products available at IFIs and DFIs.
