Overview

South Africa plays a major role as an entry point for institutional investors into Africa, particularly in the Southern and Eastern African region.  This is evident in the impact the recent credit rating downgrades is having on the cost of capital, especially private equity, debt funds and risk-based investments.  However, whilst the downgrades may make it difficult for local private equity funds to raise capital from international investors through traditional means in the short term, the uncertain political and economic climate could spur alternative initiatives to raise capital.

Themed Navigating New Paths to Growth, the Africa Investment Funds and Asset Management (AIFAM) Forum is the regional investment industry barometer. The AIFAM Forum creates an ecosystem for senior executives to interact with one another and share ideas in a media free exclusive environment. It’s delivery format will encourage in-depth dialogue, networking and creates an ecosystem driven by knowledge sharing about what works and what doesn’t work when investing in East and Southern Africa.

AIFAM brings together institutional investors, investment managers, regulators, policy-makers, private sector and portfolio companies to discuss the growing need for asset owners to adopt a proactive role in long-term capital investments. The Forum is focused on the intersection of macro-economic developments, capital markets, traditional and alternative investments in African markets and a speaking faculty of thought leaders meticulously selected from around the globe to explore contemporary issues impacting investment in Africa and other frontier markets.

The 2017 AIFAM Regional Forum takes place in Gaborone, Botswana; and places emphasis on practitioner insights and investment strategies including a spotlight on – private equity, private debt, agribusiness, infrastructure, hedge and real estate investing.
