2. Private Sector Financing Advisor

Seeking a creative, entrepreneurial, and mission-driven financing expert interested in a six to twelve month secondment from an investment bank to help lead the Financing Alliance, a new cross-sector partnership focused on leveraging traditional and innovative financing sources to support health systems across Africa.

The Private Sector Financing Advisor should have at least 3-5 years of experience with a top tier investment bank and ideally in emerging markets and bond markets. He or she should be ready to ‘roll up’ his or her sleeves to help design and run an innovative venture that will make a critical difference in decreasing maternal and child mortality across sub-Saharan Africa.

In particular, the Private Sector Financing Advisor will play a key role in engaging with members of the investment banking and private equity communities that may be interested in investing in a range of sovereign bonds and performance-based development bonds now under consideration to support health systems in developing countries. In addition, the Financing Advisor will help structure, market, and refine these vehicles and potentially support specific transactions – all in support of government’s efforts to diversify their financing structures and pathways for health. He or she will also be charged with developing pathways for African-based companies to invest in community health systems.
