Fundraising in the U.S.

The sources of capital for Africa-focused private equity funds are changing, with more traditional, large U.S. institutional investors, such as pension funds, insurance companies, and endowments warming up to Africa-focused funds.

With over 70 percent of total PE capital originating in the U.S. Africa-focused funds must come to the U.S. to raise capital if they are to meet the funding gap in the continent. However, there are practical issues African alternative managers need to know to successfully fundraise. This immersion is a opportunity to ask the most pressing questions related to raising funds from U.S. asset owners.
