Zambia & University of Cape Town, 2023

M’khuzo Mwachande is an Investment Banker with experience in emerging markets in Sub-Saharan Africa. Under a year, he impressively rose from Analyst to Senior Analyst, and then to Associate, showcasing his exceptional skills and dedication.

In 2022, M’khuzo led a ground-breaking corporate action on the Lusaka Securities Exchange. This transaction involved successfully restructuring a USD 15 million Corporate Bond, leading to a USD 8.7 million Rights Issue capital raise to fulfil bondholders' obligations. Notably, this was the first transaction of its kind in Zambia, requiring M’khuzo to navigate uncharted regulatory and shareholder approval processes. His expertise allowed him to overcome challenges in such an illiquid market.

He founded an agri-business focused on livestock during his undergraduate studies, aiming to create positive and sustainable social and economic impact. He seeks to undertake sustainable Agric-investments aligned with Zambia's agricultural diversification policy to contribute to the country's economic development.
