Structure & Governance - African Trade Insurance Agency

Structure & Governance

ATI has a unique structure, which is based on our dual mandate. We have both a commercial and a developmental mandate. This means that we work toward profitability while also supporting the developmental objectives of our African member countries.  We are governed by a Board of Directors with oversight from the World Bank and the African Development Bank.

ATI is registered under a United Nations Charter. We are a multilateral organisation that is majority owned by African governments.

ATI’s Governance Structure


Enhanced Governance: Enterprise Risk Management

To maximise our risk management and governance structure, ATI put in place an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) framework, which helps us expand and regularly evaluate the effectiveness of our internal controls. It also enables us to implement an organisation-wide risk management system in order to improve in several areas, including:

  • Aligning our risk appetite with our strategy
  • Enhancing our risk response decisions
  • Reducing operational surprises and losses
  • Identifying and managing multiple and cross-enterprise risks
  • Seizing opportunities by identifying a broad range of potential risk events.
