About the Firm
CrossBoundary is a mission-driven investment firm committed to unlocking the power of capital to make a substantial return while creating a lasting difference in frontier markets.
We take a transaction-centered approach to frontier markets. CrossBoundary provides investment advisory services, having developed a specialized expertise in unleashing investment across all sectors in fragile and frontier markets. Our advisory clients include governments, development finance institutions, private equity firms, Fortune 100 companies, and research institutions. Our direct investment arm, CrossBoundary Energy, finances solar projects in Africa. Learn more at www.crossboundary.com.
CrossBoundary is recruiting a full-time Principal to lead our off-grid energy engagements in Nigeria. The Principal will advise on investment into off-grid energy businesses in Nigeria such as solar home systems and mini grids.
CrossBoundary is not a development firm and is not seeking typical development skills. Principal candidates should have 8+ years of experience working in high caliber finance or consulting organizations and experience working in developing countries – ideally in Nigeria. Expertise in project finance, renewable energy, and/or off-grid generation will be regarded favorably. A Master degree in Business Administration or Finance is expected, but extensive relevant experience may be accepted as equivalent.
We are open to candidates looking for a 3 to 4 year commitment as well as those who want to build a long-term career with our firm.
