Invest Africa and Global Investment Bank announce strategic partnership

Invest Africa (IA) has announced a strategic partnership with Dubai-based Global Investment Bank (GIB) to collaborate on impact investment strategies capable of delivering sustainable positive social impact in Africa.

GIB holds the view that the absence of purpose and qualitative value creation within the conventional investment and business strategies is perhaps the greatest obstacle standing in the way of sustained economic growth and social prosperity. GIB is an award-winning wealth management and investment banking boutique focused on innovating financial products and investment solutions capable of creating value above and beyond the traditional quantitative analysis by infusing profitability with purpose.

Zahara Malik, head of Invest Africa’s UAE chapter, will be joining GIB in Dubai and will lead this partnership. She will continue to run Invest Africa’s exclusive Africa-focused partnership with the Dubai Chambers and the core membership base of Invest Africa’s UAE chapter.

Zahara has been appointed to the newly formed Invest Africa UAE Advisory Board, chaired by Robert Hersov, along with Advisory Board Member Reza Dari, Chief Executive of GIB.
