Fieldstone Africa originated from Fieldstone, which was founded in 1990 by senior investment bankers from the Bankers Trust Company. Fieldstone started in New York and London, and was focused on energy and infrastructure from its inception. It entered the African market in the mid-1990s and the Johannesburg practice, the forerunner of Fieldstone Africa, was established in 1996.

Fieldstone Africa is the new brand coined in 2015 to capture the continental focus, 22-year history and leading position in financial advisory and project finance in Africa. It operates from offices in Johannesburg, London, Berlin, Nairobi and Dakar with representative offices in Washington DC and Lima, and draws upon the global resources and experience of Fieldstone to deliver service based on local knowledge at an international standard.
