Our presence in the Middle East & North Africa

Frankfurt School has been working in the Middle East and North Africa for more than 15 years and was one of the first advisory companies to support financial sector development in the MENA states. We are working closely with local banks and microfinance institutions to create, expand and enhance their outreach to the market of MSMEs.

We also work with vulnerable groups such as women, youth and refugees through tailored Technical Assistance (TA) programmes. Other areas in our portfolio include comprehensive risk management solutions, as well as the promotion of affordable and clean energy through climate financing mechanisms.

Through our regional office established in Jordan in 2015, we leverage our deep knowledge of the distinctive needs of the MENA region and continue to contribute to its economic development and welfare improvement. More information about some of our flagship projects in the region can be found below.
