Buoyed by naira’s devaluation, a bullish oil market and the relative attractiveness of the nation assets; significant institutional capital has flowed into Nigeria in the past months. This reaffirms investors outlook on Nigeria as a viable long-term investment destination despite growing indebtedness, shrinking economy and uncertainty in the political scene. Given the uncertain outlook that’s likely to prevail, what makes investing in Nigeria so attractive? What strategies or structures are available to investors keen to access Africa’s largest economy? What and where are the investable alternative asset classes?
With this year’s theme, implementing drivers and enablers for financial and impact returns, the Africa Alternative Investment Intensive (AAII) – 2018 Nigeria Forum will enable critical and thought-provoking discussions on how to successfully navigate a rapidly growing, risky, illiquid and relatively non-transparent alternatives markets.
Held under the Chatham House Rule, the AAII – 2018 Nigeria forum will bring together a carefully selected ecosystem of investment professionals and industry stakeholders to examine what works and what doesn't work when investing in Nigeria's private markets and alternative assets (infrastructure debt, real estate, alternative credit, private equity and debt). The forum will highlight investable strategies, executable themes and showcase select investment opportunities.
