Powering sustainable African growth
Africa’s continuing economic and social development is encouraging investors to expand their portfolios in the continent. However, there remains a pressing need for greater investment in infrastructure, especially power. The continent is attracting billions of dollars in finance from corporations, multi-lateral organisations, pension funds and private equity firms; funds which have the potential to enhance Africa’s productivity and transform the lives of its citizens.
FT African Infrastructure Financing and Development: Powering sustainable African growth draws on the success of 2015’s inaugural event to bring together policy makers, regulators and C-level representatives from pension funds, asset managers, investment banks, family offices and multi-family wealth offices – as well as product specialists, economic development thinkers, lawyers and consultants – to debate the potential for sustainable African growth.
Speakers will draw on real world case studies and explore how the continent’s infrastructure challenge can be addressed, the role of regional integration in infrastructure development, the challenges and opportunities associated with project development, the importance of infrastructure to sustainable development, the investment techniques needed for a successful infrastructure project, the risks and opportunities of investment, regulations and tax developments.
