Alternative Forums

The Africa Alternative Investment Forums are an open exchange for alternative and real asset investors to explore investable strategies, examine executable themes, and access 'vetted' investment opportunities in Africa. It is an ecosystem of asset owners, asset managers, regulators and companies driven by knowledge sharing on investing and doing business in Africa,

The forums are run strictly under The Chatham House Rule. The intimate event format—including one–on–one facilitated meetings, roundtable discussions and LP/GP panels—is designed to foster dialogue between asset owners and asset managers, either active or interested in African‐focused alternative investments.

At the forums, asset managers with expertise in investing in Africa alternative assets and private markets will share their insights and strategies including a spotlight on recent investments. Asset owners with active investments in the region, including global and Africa based investors, will provide first‐hand perspectives on investing in Africa.

For opportunity to highlight your brand positioning, build long-term valuable relationship, engage with a senior-level audience, demonstrate thought-leadership, and educate your market place. Please contact us at enquiries@africanalternative.com, or +44(0) 208 870 6620.
