Hoda Atia Moustafa is to be the new Regional Head for Africa at the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency or MIGA, the World Bank’s political risk insurance and credit enhancement arm. She will be based in Dakar, Senegal and focus on enhancing the agency’s support for private investors on the continent and strengthening key partnerships with clients, development institutions and governments in the region.
Moustafa joined the MIGA’s Legal Affairs and Claims Management Group in 2007 and has worked on a wide range of transactions, creating new products as well as innovative applications of MIGA’s existing products to clients.
