JOIN US FOR AN INFORMATIVE PANEL DISCUSSION & NETWORKING DRINKS

Africa, pre-credit crisis, was attracting record investment flows. Debt relief and market reforms combined with investors' search for yield to make Africa the new investment frontier. Post-crisis, how is Africa faring? How has the crisis affected Africa and is the worst over? What is next in terms of financing African development? How can domestic markets grow to support financing needs? What are off-shore Africa investors looking for - what structures or assets are attracting them back? Our expert panel will discuss:

  • How Africa competes for capital in the post-credit crisis paradigm
  • Addressing Africa's liquidity problems to meet massive development financing needs
  • Options for government financing - What Currencies; What Structures; What Works Now?
  • Investing in Africa – Making the case for investment; balancing risk and reward
