Established in 2013, investment bank BDG aims to bridge the gap between international investors and opportunities in Guinea which possesses the largest bauxite reserves in the world apart from abundant resources in other minerals, hydropower and agriculture.
Under the leadership of present head of state, the country is committed to progress and change, and aims to mobilize its abundance of natural resources to drive the economy forward.
Managing Director David Ng had 35 years of banking experience in Hong Kong before taking up leadership of BDG in February 2017. His deputy MD Fatoumata Toure is a return Guinean from the US, with impressive career record at Citibank and PNB Bank.
CFO Ken Looi is a qualified accountant in Australia with experience in KPMG and JP Morgan Chase in Malaysia. The executive team is under leadership from the London based non-executive Chairman Andrew Chak who has significant capital markets experience.
BDG is committed to adopting the strictest international standards and best practices, emphasizing transparency, governance and corporate social responsibility. It is striving hard to be accredited to the World Bank, IFC, African Development Bank and the Green Climate Fund to be partners in financing for projects in Guinea.
The ultimate objective of the bank is to find long term, strategic investors whose goals are in line with the national interest of the country and its people.
