Dr. Vicente Pons

Managing Principal
Frontera Capital

Vicente Pons has focused on the financial markets of sub-Sahara Africa since 2004. Shortly after finishing his doctoral degree, Vicente joined Citigroup, where he set up the Africa local currency and credit derivatives desk. He grew the Desk’s portfolio to being the largest Africa local currency book on the Street, with assets in excess of USD 4.5 billion.

Vicente joined Renaissance Capital in 2007 as head of fixed income trading for Africa and later Exotix Limited as head of origination and structuring in 2008.

Vicente then joined Ecobank in 2011 as head of the Currency & African Asset Distribution (CAAD) desk, Ecobank’s international platform to intermediate capital flows between foreign institutional investors and sub-Sahara Africa’s governments and corporates.

In March 2014, Vicente left Ecobank to set up Frontera Capital. Vicente is also particularly interested in the mining sector, especially in frontier markets. Dr Pons is a native Spanish-speaker and is a Ph.D graduate in Finance from Yale University.
