An employee-owned, entrepreneurial advisory boutique

Rebel was founded in 2002 and has established itself as a leader in infrastructure transaction and financing in the buoyant Benelux market.

Enhancing our impact in East Africa

Over the last 10 years, our portfolio in the East Africa region has increased steadily. To demonstrate our commitment to the region, we started a venture in 2018: Rebel East Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya. Through this venture, we aim to further increase its portfolio in infrastructure projects in the region. Our Rebel East Africa team has extensive experience in development finance, economic policy and capacity building, with recent projects in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia for semi-governmental, public and private organisations, as well as in fund design and structuring PPPs.
