Investment Intensive



IMPLEMENTING CATALYSTS FOR IMPACT AND FINANCIAL RETURNS


 
 
 
 
Held at the fringe of the UN General Assembly, the Intensive convenes an ecosystem of asset owners, investment consultants, asset managers, corporates and other industry stakeholders committed to addressing the two key challenges facing asset owners interested in building alternative assets portfolio in Africa.

Themed catalysts for impact and financial returns, forum enables thought-provoking discussions on how to successfully navigate and address these two key challenges -

  • lack of experience which prevents Investment Committees and Trustees from being able to safely to allow their investment teams to make capital commitments,
  • The absence of available investment vehicles, but rather a relatively limited range of funds and individual projects which don’t offer the diversification of risk which is required,

The Intensive also serves as a conduit for asset owners and fund managers that are investing or thinking of investing in Africa’s rapidly growing, risky, and relatively non-transparent alternatives markets.


KEY THEMES

SCALING IMPACT INVESTING


Scaling Impact Investing in Africa

Leading impact investors deploying capital for return, social and environmental outcomes convene to identify new approaches to inspire, educate and look at progress in scaling up capital in the impact space.
INFRASTRUCTURE DEBT


Investing in infrastructure debt

African asset owners can take advantage of infrastructure debt as their long-dated liabilities provide a natural match for the long-dated nature of infrastructure debt. What are the challenges of this in Africa?
PRIVATE EQUITY & REAL ASSETS


New Capital Model for Africa

Alongside PE, fund managers now have private debt and permanent capital vehicles (PCV) as alternative strategies of risk-adjusted returns in their investment portfolio. This Intensive examines drivers of this growing trend.
