Asia is strategically important to Africa’s growth story. Managed by RMB, the Shanghai representative office plays a leading role in facilitating trade flows between Africa and greater China, East Asia and South East Asia. This area is significant as it includes more than one quarter of the global population.

In greater China, our partnership with China Construction Bank, the China Africa Development Bank, China Export & Import Bank and Sinosure furthermore enable us to support our clients on either side of the Asia-Africa corridor.

Across the rest of East and South East Asia, we are also well positioned, for example through our strategic co-operation agreement with MUFG Bank and others, to support clients on both sides of the corridor with ever-increasing trade and investment flows with Africa.

Our core focus areas are:


  • Corporate Finance Advisory
  • Mergers and Acquisitions


  • Corporate Finance

  • General banking facilities – Transactional and Corporate Banking, Trade and Working Capital (LCs)

    We assist with the flow of funds and the settlement of trades across major currency pairs, while facilitating the hedging of foreign exchange risk.
