Head: Structured Asset Management

Anthony Evens


Anthony Evens is the Head of Special Asset Management at Absa’s Corporate and Investment Banking division providing restructuring solutions for clients across the African Continent. After qualifying as a CA(SA) Anthony moved to London where he spent 7 years working in Corporate Finance, Mergers and Acquisitions and Strategy for PwC and Barclays Capital. During this time, Anthony provided advice on deals across UK, Europe, North America, New Zealand and Australia.

Anthony returned to South Africa in 2008, which coincided with the Global Financial Crisis causing some unique dislocation in the SA banking market and Anthony’s initiation into the distress sector. Since then, Anthony has worked on most major restructurings amassing experience across a broad range of sectors and geographies in the African context.

One of Anthony’s desires is to see the African distress market develop to its full potential for the advancement of our economies.
