On a piece of land that is three times the size of the United States, 1.2 billion people call Africa home. Rich in natural resources and minerals, Africa has always been an attractive destination for tourism. Now with increasing political stability and growing interconnectivity with the rest of the world, certain African countries have become some of the fastest growing economies in the world.
As early as 2008, RMB Westport recognised the potential in Africa. For this reason we have started creating opportunistic value-added real estate developments to change the African skyline in populous cities, in high-yield jurisdictions in sub-Saharan Africa. We developed several modern shopping centres and A-grade office blocks across Nigeria, Ghana and Angola over the past decade.
In 2008, RMB Westport came into being when Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) entered into a joint venture with the Westport Property Group. The thinking behind this union was to combine the Westport Property Group’s development expertise with the investment and structuring expertise of RMB in order to embark on large-scale construction, development and maintenance projects in key areas.
Since then we have been building prosperity in sub-Saharan Africa with our retail and commercial projects, maintaining a specific focus on Nigeria, Ghana, Angola and Côte d’Ivoire. Our team is a committed group of professionals with exceptional skills in various areas of real estate development and financial structuring.
Join us on this exciting journey as we work together to change the African skyline with high-grade real estate developments.
