We are an international development company that partners with governments, aid organisations and companies in over 100 countries. Through consultancy, supply chain management and financial services, we help countries grow their economies, strengthen their health systems and improve financial management.
Taking on clients’ fundamental challenges, we make lasting change to the systems and improve financial management. We have worked with many of our client countries for many decades and are a stakeholder in their growth and development, with people and offices in Africa and Asia as well as the UK, US and Japan. In addition, we work in partnership with multilateral agencies such as the World Bank, European Commission, United Nations agencies and regional development banks, and bilateral donors such as the UK, Japanese and US governments.
For many years Crown Agents was a British public corporation. In 1997 we transferred to the private sector as a limited company owned by a new entity - The Crown Agents Foundation. Members of the Foundation are companies and other international organisations with a keen interest in our activities. We operate at all times to the highest standards of integrity and transparency and bring an agile and resourceful approach to complex situations.
Incorporated as a private limited company Crown Agents Ltd has only one shareholder - the Crown Agents Foundation, a not-for-profit company. Crown Agents Ltd's registered office is in Sutton in Surrey, 11 miles southwest of central London.
