EFG Hermes’ vision to become the premier frontier markets finance institution is well on its way
to becoming a reality. In 2018, EFG Hermes cemented its position as the foremost provider of
financial solutions for retail, high-net-worth and institutional clients across MENA and Frontier
Emerging Markets (FEM). Today, EFG Hermes provides a wide spectrum of financial services to
a growing base of institutional investors and retail clients through two verticals: the Investment
Bank and our Non-Bank Financial Services.
After expanding into Pakistan, Kenya, the UK and the US in 2017, we extended our geographic
footprint in 2018 by establishing branches in Bangladesh and Nigeria. This consolidates our
presence in both South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa in addition to the MENA region, Europe
and the US.
Our team currently consists of the most experienced frontier market professionals in the
market, ensuring the best execution and sourcing of liquidity. We also have a frontier trading
hub in Dubai with distribution in London, Cairo and New York. In markets where we don’t
have our own team, we have access to a network of over 40 trusted local brokers.
Despite the difficult operating environment in FEM, EFG Hermes has been able to leverage the
full cycle of its experience in navigating market volatility in MENA. With a dedicated frontier
platform now in place, the Firm has been able to differentiate itself by using its existing
distribution platform to offer a more comprehensive and integrated set of products than its
