Longonot Finance

Longonot Finance is the financial advisory business created and managed by myself, Dieter Poortman. I have over 15 years of professional experience in public and private companies and for the Dutch government. From 2006, I have worked in investment banking and have successfully transacted with more than 25 companies in Africa. In 2011 and 2012, I have lived and worked in Kenya and Nigeria for African companies with a regional footprint. I started Longonot Finance in October 2012.


In the course of my corporate and banking career, I have had the opportunity of assessing a large variety of company strategies, business proposals and business cases both in Europe and Africa. There are as much factors for business success as there are for its failure. Life is not perfect. I am not perfect, nor is your institution. Understanding the financial drivers of your business, and managing them now and in the future, is a key driver of sustainable financial business success. Longonot Finance can support you in enhancing transparency of your business.
