Francis Opoku-Mensah

Portfolio Manager, Anglophone West Africa

As portfolio manager for Anglophone West Africa, I am responsible for business development for prospective clients, credit analysis and risk management, provision of advisory services for clients, and organizational and administrative management for the region. I have over ten years’ experience in investment appraisal, financial modeling, agricultural value chain financing & products development consulting, medium-to-long term investment structuring, fund management and general entrepreneurship/enterprise development experience on major donor funded projects and assignments. Prior to joining the Root Capital team, I worked with TechnoServe in Ghana as their Enterprise Finance Manager responsible for managing the DFID Grant Fund of £4.086 Million under the Program “Enhancing Growth in New Enterprises.” I am excited to continue to apply my financial services and business background to another mission-driven organization in West Africa.
