Taking Financial & Digital Investments To The Next Level!
eFinance is one of Egypt’s leading developers of digital payment infrastructures and is renowned for its comprehensive network management solutions and end-to-end process services. eFinance was initially founded in 2005 with the goal to construct and operate the Egyptian government’s financial network and, over the years, has made various strategic pivots until it transformed into a fully fledged technology focused investment group that became listed on the Egyptian Stock Exchange (EGX) in 2021.
Today, the Group boasts a comprehensive portfolio of subsidiaries and ancillary investments that have allowed eFinance to be present across the full scale of the digital payments value chain. eFinance’s newly formulated Group structure has allowed it to not only unlock synergies across its operations but to also tap into new sectors across the nation and enhance its overall offering, leaving it well-positioned to capture increased market share across its various lines of business and grow its presence across the digital value chain.
Years of Success
eFinance successfully listed its shares on the Egyptian Exchange (EGX), marking a new chapter in the Group's growth story. In what was the largest Egyptian listing in recent history, eFinance's institutional and retail offerings were 6.8 and 61.4 times oversubscribed, respectively, underlining the Group's unique value proposition: eFinance's extensive network of subsidiaries unites a one-of-a-kind network architecture that provides seamless processing for billions of transactions.
eFinance has established a powerful platform for the generation of sustainable growth by taking the lead in Egypt's efforts to develop a cashless, digitally enabled economy, pioneering digitization in activities from banking and taxation to utility and retail transactions, to customs collection and card management.
