EOI- Côte D’Ivoire - Consultant for a Study on Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in Guinea-Conakry – OFSD – 06 2015

 | Published June 1, 2015

1 REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST Brief Description of the assignment: Consultant for a Study on Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in Guinea-Conakry Department making the request: OFSD Place of assignment: Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire Period of assignment: June 2015 to July 2015 Expected start date of the assignment: 22 June 2015 Last date for expressing interest: 12 June 2015 Expression of interest to be submitted to: Any questions/ clarifications needed to be addressed to: Terms of reference for “Consultant for a Study on Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in Guinea- Conakry” I. INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND In 2014, the African Development Bank (AfDB) was approached by the Government of Guinea-Conakry in order to assist with the establishment of a new development finance institution (DFI) whose aim will be to increase access to finance, particularly medium to long-term finance, for the country’s private sector. The existing DFIs in Guinea have so far been unable to effectively address market gaps, facilitate meaningful increases in financial intermediation in terms of outreach and scale, or galvanize sustainable development in their respective sectors. Many of these institutions intervened directly in the marketplace, substituting for private sector investment and risk taking. As commonly seen in old-style development finance, by assuming credit risk, most of the DFIs were quickly confronted with high levels of non-performing loans (NPLs), caused by factors such as lack of appropriate lending methodology and capacity, an inadequate incentive structure to originate and maintain a performing loan portfolio and avert non-performance and politically influenced governance structures. The ability to take direct lending decisions also made these institutions more vulnerable to capture, a situation further exacerbated by the lack of independent and effective oversight. As a result, the existing DFIs have been unable to achieve operational and financial sustainability, reach unbanked segments of entrepreneurs at scale, or sustainably provide finance. Recognizing these limitations, the Government of Guinea-Conakry decided to seek the support of the AfDB in establishing a new DFI that will be better regulated and more clearly aligned with development priorities. The support from the AfDB is expected to be in the form of a significant contribution to the design of the structure of the new DFI. In terms of the design of the new DFI, the Financial Sector Development Department (OFSD) of the AfDB has decided to recruit a Consultant for a study whose aim will be to carry out an extensive diagnostic 2 review of the existing DFI landscape in Guinea and propose a structure that is best suited for the needs of the country. II. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY The objectives of the study are twofold: 1. Assessing the DFI landscape in Guinea-Conakry with particular emphasis on the factors that have led to the underperformance of the institutions that have been established thus far; and 2. Determining the optimal DFI structure that will ensure sustainable impact and scale and which will be best suited for the needs and particular characteristics of the country. Equally important is the need to ensure that the design of the proposed new DFI is informed by an in-depth review of global experiences relating to DFI reforms. III. SCOPE OF WORK The above objectives are discussed in more detail below: 1. Assessing the DFI landscape in Guinea-Conakry: Like almost every country (including the most advanced economies), Guinea-Conakry has established a number of DFIs in the past including the most recent Banque Africaine pour le Développement Agricole et Minier (BADAM) which was established in 2010 and went bankrupt within its first few years of existence as a result of a number of documented factors including political interference and mismanagement. In assessing the DFI landscape, the study will need to identify and provide a comprehensive list of factors that have led to the underperformance of the previously established DFIs as these will be taken into account in designing the new institution. The assessment will also need to identify the salient features of the previous DFIs in terms of the following:  Ownership structures;  Governance including the process for the appointment of management and board members;  Regulation and supervision with emphasis on the entities overseeing the DFIs;  Types of banking licenses;  Credit models (retail or wholesale);  Mandates and target sectors;  Financial performance;  Risk management;  Sources of funding;  …and in other features that would assist in understanding the performance of the previous DFIs in Guinea. 2. To assist the Government of Guinea-Conakry in their quest for establishing a new DFI that will deliver on its mandate in an impactful manner, the study would need to propose an innovative design structure that takes into account the findings of the above objective as well as recent trends in global DFIs. In particular, the study would need to focus on the following:  Appropriate ownership model: state ownership vs. a mixed public-private capital structure; 3  Appropriate capital structure (optimal sizes of equity and balance sheet);  Funding strategy;  Mandate and sector(s) to target. Need to ensure that the mandate is tight;  Appropriate governance structure with clear process for the appointment of the board and management. This is necessary to ensure that the DFI is profitable, self-funding and insulated from political interference;  Regulation and supervision especially who should supervise the new DFI;  Type of required banking license; and  Appropriate risk management framework and credit model, retail vs. wholesale. IV. METHODOLOGY The objectives of the study would be expected to be achieved through an initial desk review followed by missions to Guinea-Conakry to meet with the relevant stakeholders including, but not limited to:  The central bank;  The ministry of finance;  Existing DFIs;  Commercial banks;  The private sector; and  Development partners in Guinea. V. DELIVERABLES The following deliverables are expected from the study:  A detailed assessment of the DFI landscape in Guinea-Conakry; and  Design of a new DFI that will be operationally and financially sustainably and insulated from political interference and capture. These will be documented in a report to be submitted to the AfDB. VI. PROJECT MANAGEMENT, INSTITUTIONAL AND IMPLEMENTATION ARRANGEMENTS The study will be implemented by the Consultant selected by the Task Managers (Sofiane Sekioua and Laura French). The Consultant will report to and be guided by the Task Managers and implement the study according to the present Terms of Reference.
