Rogito Nyangeri is the founder of Alterfina Limited, a receivables trading platform that provides on-demand financing to green companies as well as those operating in the healthcare and education industries. Prior to starting Alterfina, he was the Head of Strategy and Research at the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE), the sixth-largest stock exchange in Africa. While at the NSE, Nyangeri created the M-Akiba mobile bond in Kenya, a first-of-its kind financial instrument that enables retail investors to lend money directly to the government, bypassing the banks that have traditionally dominated public financing. On fellowship he would like to develop a Social Impact Bond for the education and healthcare sectors. Nyangeri plans to exchange ideas with institutions that have rolled out similar programs in the U.S.
