We are the Republic of Guinea’s principal investment bank with a clear mandate to support the country’s development. Our aim is to act as the main channel for finance for projects to modernise, renew and transform its infrastructure and economy.

Established to play a key role in the republic’s Poverty Reduction Strategy, we were granted our banking licence by the Central Bank of Guinea.  We are also a member of the world’s principal centre for trading industrial metals: the London Metal Exchange.

As of January 2018, Guinea’s president decreed BDG to be the only non-government member of the working committee responsible for identifying and monitoring all projects eligible for Chinese funding.

Guinea will benefit from wisely allocated capital to harness its natural resources, unlock the dynamism of its people and to establish us further as a key partner for trade and industry in Guinea and West Africa.

The focus on developing the transport network, managing commodities and building new and improved infrastructure offers stable, long-term opportunities for investors both at home and abroad.

Our achievements are beginning to be recognised. We have been named Best Socio-Economic Impact Bank for West Africa as we continue to back the republic’s drive to a brighter future.
