Africonomie Events

Africonomie Investor Forums are an open exchange for alternative and real asset investors to explore investable strategies, examine executable themes, and access 'vetted' investment opportunities in Africa. It is an ecosystem of sovereign asset owners, institutional investors, private investors, family offices and fund managers driven by knowledge sharing on investing and doing business in Africa,

The forums are run strictly under The Chatham House Rule. The intimate event format—including one–on–one facilitated meetings, roundtable discussions and LP/GP panels—is designed to foster dialogue, interaction, and introductions among all participants. As a forum where investors, either active or interested in African‐focused investments, can gather knowledge and build relationships, the forums serve as a springboard for future trade missions for investors from both regions.

At the forums, managers with expertise in alternative assets – private equity, private debt, agribusiness, infrastructure, hedge and real estate investing in Africa will share their insights and investment strategies including a spotlight on recent investments. Institutional investors with active investments in the region, including Africa based investors, global pension plans, insurance companies, endowments, foundations and regional family offices will provide first‐hand perspectives on investing in Africa.
