Homestrings began in 2012 as an African diaspora investment crowdfunding platform that offered unique fractional investment opportunities ranging from bonds, equity to private equity offerings.
In 2016, Homestrings was retained by Asian Development Bank to conduct diaspora investment feasibility studies following Homestrings’ successful design and execution of Homestrings Diaspora Bonds. Homestrings conducted three feasibility studies: Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Indonesia. Homestrings was subsequently retained by World Bank/IFC to conduct diaspora investment feasibility studies and surveys: Haiti, Jamaica. The African Development Bank also retained Homestrings to assist the regional regulator of the West African stock exchange to conduct feasibility of listing diaspora investment products on the exchange. Since then Homestrings has conducted additional studies for USAID and several private sector players.
These design studies led to Homestrings being retained to design new products and project financing solutions on a global basis, including migrant worker solutions and Investment Promotion Agencies as well as stock exchanges.
