AFRICAN ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENT INTENSIVE – 4TH LONDON FORUM.jpg
 

Overview

Although still a nascent industry, private equity is arguably the only alternative asset class well positioned to give institutional investors access to Africa's private markets. Infrastructure and real assets have struggled to attract significant institutional capital, whilst alternative credit and private debt are overlooked by debt funds. Given the limited data and knowledge of how to access alternative assets and private markets in Africa, the confidence to invest is held back by the concern of undue risk exposure.

Despite the growing popularity of Africa private equity, many LPs and GPs are apprehensive that the investable themes that pitted Africa private markets against many emerging markets are not been realised.  Thus prompting the question – Is there really an alternatives markets for institutional and private investors seeking risk–adjusted returns in Africa?  Where does the real value of investing in Africa alternatives lie?  How viable is investing in Africa alternative assets?  How can alternative fund managers capture further value for asset owners?   What are the best ways to gain meaningful exposure to alternative assets?

Themed Leveraging Alternatives for Risk–Adjusted Returns, the 2017 AAII – 5th London Forum is a practitioner–led, peer-to-peer ecosystem of insitutional investors and fund managers that are committed to addressing the principal blocks to institutions with a strong appetite to build infrastructure, real assets, private equity, alternative credit, and private debt portfolios across Africa.  The Intensive is a “talk-show free” open forum driven by knowledge sharing about what works and what doesn't work when investing in Africa, and it is held under the Chatham House Rule.
