Severus Capital is an alternative lender that provides Structured Finance to medium sized companies operating in Africa. There is a persistent lending gap in emerging markets as banks and traders have withdrawn credit for regulatory and risk reasons. Severus focuses on arranging and funding short and medium term transactions in flexible and innovative ways to address this gap.

There is a small and experienced team of investment professionals working in the UK supported by a strong network of originators in Africa and in key trading centres.
