Mining and Extractives Investment Advisor
|Location:||Middle East / North Africa|
INVEST is a USAID-funded activity that will develop an approach to sourcing, facilitating, and executing illustrative and impactful deals that catalyze private investment capital and build strategic, market-deepening partnerships in Afghanistan. The optimal approach will provide a suite of service offerings appropriate for each partner or transaction identified in INVEST’s core activity streams – civil aviation, mining, and gemstones. This could include direct or procured transaction advisory support, investor matchmaking, other risk-mitigating approaches to catalyzing commercial investment, or the development of new financial instruments. Additionally, this INVEST activity will continually work to build its network of partners and investors, in Afghanistan, Central Asia, the Gulf, the U.S., and other target regions, to ensure activities are at the forefront of investment and private sector engagement aimed at achieving USAID’s priorities.
INVEST’s focus on Afghanistan’s mining sector aims to rapidly close investment deals advancing large-scale Afghan mineral projects and leveraging foreign investments. INVEST’s support in this core activity stream will use a hybrid implementation model – engaging both transaction advisors and procuring transaction advisory firms.
The Mining and Extractives Investment Advisor will work closely with the INVEST Strategic Investment Advisor and other members of the Mining Investment Advisory team to foster the closing of business deals in the mining and extractives industries. Special emphasis will be on private sector and priority tenders released by Afghanistan’s Ministry of Mines and Petroleum (MoMP). The consultant will be responsible for identifying and directly engaging corporate/industry investors and match them with business relationships and investment opportunities in Afghanistan, with the final objective of closing investment and business transactions/deals.
The Mining and Extractives Investment Advisor will be responsible for the following tasks:
The Mining and Extractives Investment Advisor will participate in overall work-planning activities led by the INVEST Afghanistan Strategic Investment Advisor (SIA) and Activity Manager and will contribute inputs for any necessary work plans or reports. The team will report directly to the SIA, who will be responsible for overall oversight, technical guidance, and management of the team of consultants. The SIA will remain responsible for communicating with USAID on all matters related to INVEST and/or INVEST’s deals in the mining sector. Any requests to speak or present on behalf of INVEST or the activities in the mining sector should be approved and cleared by the SIA.
