Africa’s perceived attractiveness has risen considerably over the past several years. Private equity investments provide an opportunity to those who look to both contribute to, and benefit from, Africa’s growth story. And with a combination of capital and management experience, private equity is a perfect fit for Africa.
And though private equity investments can enable growth and spur industries, the decision to invest in emerging markets depends on various development and market conditions.
At QG Investments Africa Management Ltd. (QGIAM), in Mauritius, we understand potential obstacles like weak and evolving legal and regulatory frameworks, nascent capital markets and the limited presence of investment-ready opportunities. We take a considerate approach to risks in Africa and we are prepared to approach investments with a long-term, bottom-up approach.
Private equity overall, and greenfield and brownfield investments in particular, can create the value sought by investors while simultaneously transforming economic sectors, supporting substantial job and wealth creation objectives and thus act as a catalyst for development.
