Nana FrancoisCEO Opportunity International UK

Nana joined Opportunity International UK as CEO in September 2022.  She joined from FaithInvest where as Director of Investment Solutions she led a team helping faith-based organisations put their money where their values are. Prior to this she worked in the corporate financial services sector for almost twenty years, holding a number of positions with Gartmore, with J.P. Morgan and with Barclays in South Africa.

Alongside her Barclays role in South Africa, Nana was heavily involved in church programmes that sought to make projects more sustainable, and in funding and supporting female entrepreneurs in Ghana.  Through this work she saw first-hand the impact that enterprise support, education, agriculture and financial access can have in uplifting individuals and a whole community.

Nana has also held a number of governance roles - as a vice chair on the Board of the Finance Innovation Lab, with a mission to drive financial services access and justice in the UK, and as a Non Executive Director at the Impact Investing Institute supporting Impact Investing in the UK and Africa.
