With fund managers raising over US$8 billion to invest in Africa from 2014-2015, the continent’s private equity ecosystem is reaching a new phase in its maturity, and limited partner interest remains strong despite recent uncertainties in specific market conditions. Investors are confident, especially now that there are funds with demonstrable track records, that there will be out performance.
There is a greater recognition that elevated risk whether perceived or actual, is inherent when investing
in African markets, as well as the fact that on the ground expertise is essential in order to capitalise on the opportunities. Fund managers are also exercising greater caution when deploying capital,
demonstrating discipline when faced with valuation and pricing challenges.
Register today to join us, your industry peers, and global expert participants for FT and EMPEA’s 8th Annual Private Equity in Africa Summit to gain the latest intelligence, identify opportunities and clarify uncertainties, and join leading influencers from across the globe to discuss views on enhancing value and accessing returns in Africa.
