Inflexion Capital is an investment management company set up to manage Inflexion Investments Limited, an investing vehicle created by the founders of IC Securities. In building Ghana’s leading investment banking, securities trading and fund management franchises from scratch over the last 12 years, as well as having successfully executed numerous deals across sub-Saharan Africa, David Awuah-Darko and Kwabena Osei-Boateng have demonstrated a proven track record, generated clear insights and built a complex web of regional and global relationships. The principals have established Inflexion to back their emerging thesis that the competitive landscape (especially in financial services in Sub-Saharan Africa) is ripe for disruption.
We focus on consumer-facing companies whose offering involves a large number of repeat, everyday transactions, enabled by technology. Inflexion has a bias towards financial services, with a concentration on Sub-Saharan Africa.
David Awuah-Darko manages the day-to-day work on strategic initiatives and business development for the Inflexion group.
Prior to founding the group, David started his career at Lehman Brothers International (Europe) in London as a European Equities trader. David read Mathematics and Computation at Balliol College, University of Oxford, where he earned an MA (Hons) degree and won two halfblues in polo.
David served on Ghana’s National Bond Market Committee and is a fellow of the Aspen Global Leadership Network and a member of Young Presidents’ Organization.
He is a Co-Founder of IC Securities. Mr. Osei-Boateng has several years of experience in investment banking, management consulting, and private equity across several geographic markets including Europe, North America, and Africa.

He previously spent two and a half years at LongAcre Partners, where Mr. Osei-Boateng worked on successfully completed transactions totaling over £1 billion in value, focusing on the print media, convergence technologies, and related advertising sectors.
