Africa 2013: Investing in the Rising Continent

April 11, 2013


With rapid and sustained growth in many sectors, the modern investor can no longer afford to ignore the continent of Africa. Recognizing the inherent risks, the prudent investor must be able to interpret the evolving financial, economic, and political climates to determine the best possible strategies.

Get an insider’s view of investment in Africa at “Africa 2013: Investing in the Rising Continent.”  An expert panel will give a comprehensive overview of the investment vehicles available, techniques to evaluate their risk and return potential, and some of the nuts and bolts of the investment process.  Professionals with a proven track record in private equity, investment banking, research, and corporate operations on the African continent will give you an invaluable perspective on how best to position yourself to participate in the rapidly developing African marketplace. In 2013, strategies for such participation are essential for any savvy globally-minded investor, and this program will provide you with a useful and unique framework for developing them.

A networking event will follow directly after the Africa 2013 program to allow additional time for attendees to talk with the evening’s speakers.
