CEO at Deposit and Consigment Fund (DCF)

About the CDC

Financial institution, created in the form of a public industrial and commercial establishment (EPIC);

Public entity under private law;

Governance ensured by a Board of Directors;

This legal status gives agility to:

  • Fulfill its public service missions and serve the general interest;
  • Adopt management standards inspired by the private sector, based on profitability and performance.

The CDC has an administrative and financial management autonomy while being placed under the supervision of the Ministry in charge of the Economy.

Why a CDC in Gabon?

Increase and multiply public action;

Responding to the economic and social challenges of the State;

Support public policies by financing structural needs and national priorities, in particular the primary mission of collecting and securing savings;

Transforming deposits into productive jobs, by working as long-term investors and lenders;

Contribute to the diversification of the economy by intervening in public policy development strategies and plans ;

To have an investor who can be a precursor in promising sectors of activity, new or immature, to be encouraged but which do not yet attract private investors;

Finally, as a public development finance institution, it is the first long-term investor capable of supporting structuring investments of general or collective interest and economically viable.

Management of deposits and funds allocated to institutions (allocations and assigned resources of revenue and advance agencies, public projects and programmes, administrations, companies and public institutions, etc.);

Bookkeeping of the accounts of institutions and legal professionals and other professionals acting as depositaries;

Protection of regulated savings and third-party funds held by legal professionals, funds admitted on consignment, popular savings of pension funds and passbook savings accounts;

Deposit and Consigment Fund (DCF) is a new type of public investor, with public-interest missions in support of public policies conducted by the State and local authorities in the field of development. It is an institutional investor and a long-term lender;

To fulfil this mission, the DCF needs more long-term resources that will enable it to become a benchmark financial support for real estate development and acquisition, infrastructure financing, as well as low-cost financing, social housing and land use planning.

As a Caisse de dépôt, we must have abundant and long-term resources to enable it to play its role as a long-term investor effectively and to support public policies effectively;

The CDC business model is based on the structure of a long liability to avoid the constraints of access to liquidity or asset volatility, which implies:

  • A high level of equity capital;
  • Long-term resources managed under public mandates, as a trusted third party;
  • Financial instruments for collecting and mobilising savings.

The financial model responds to the need to allocate liability resources optimally according to their maturity to uses with corresponding maturity, according to standard orthodoxy;

This optimal allocation of resources makes it possible to maximise returns;

As a development institution with a long-term financing obligation, it goes without saying that the volume of long-term resources must significantly outweigh short-term resources, and CDC has just reversed its balance sheet structure: long-term resources, which in 2012 represented only 30% of total resources, now represent 52% of the Total Balance Sheet.

Our vision

Affirm our role in boosting the financial policy of the State, as an investor and long-term lender;

Strengthen the financial base;

Secure investments and strengthen customer confidence;

Position itself on sectors identified as strategic, promising and priority sectors;

Ensure financing for priority sectors, particularly social housing and SMEs;

Ensure the management of mandates entrusted by the State (infrastructure, environment, etc.);

Continuously adapt the methods of intervention and the business lines to the economic challenges.

Key figures for year 2018 of the Caisse des Dépôts are as follows:
