The Zambian economy is at a critical juncture. The latest economic indicators such as stable FX, reducing interest and inflation rates and improved corporate results are pointing towards green shoots emerging. A strong indicator that the worst is more or less behind and the economy seems to be in recovery mode.

Zambia's economy is forecast to strengthen this year, thanks to a good harvest, increasing electricity generation, and an easing of monetary policy. However, sustaining these trends will depend on how disciplined government will be in aligning fiscal and monetary policies with the need to regulate for market stability and investment harmony.

Themed implementing catalysts for impact and financial returns, the 2018 Zambia Alternative Investment Intensive (ZamAII) will enable critical and thought-provoking discussions on how long-term asset owners, investors and private markets can play a vital role in facilitating a sustainable, resilient and inclusive economic growth.
The Zambia Alternative Investment Intensive will deliver the most comprehensive practitioner-led content (strictly videos and podcast) hub on investing in Zambia’s traditional and alternative asset classes.

As part of a content and thought leadership sponsorship, we are giving a limited number of companies the opportunity to contribute to highly shareable content that tells your story, making sure informative content is backed up with strong messaging that reflects your brand.

The content hub will serve as a conduit to investment professionals that are investing or thinking of investing in Zambia.
