After unearthing deep insights into the current use and future aspirations for a new Africa Finance Hub in our first partnered report, ‘A modern Africa. A modern international financial centre’, we are turning our attention to investment via a range of investment businesses and vehicles.
Entitled ‘Realising and facilitating pan-African investment’ this research will shine a light on some of the most pressing issues and hurdles facing the African investment market.
The focus will be on three key issues:
Understanding the current utilisation and involvement of African entities in driving and facilitating investment into African markets;
Discovering the key investment business types which are most involved in increased deployment of investment funds;
Looking at the demands of investment businesses when utilising an African international financial centre to manage investment.
Hortense Mudenge, Chief Operating Officer for Rwanda Finance, said the organisation was delighted to be conducting this critical research, in partnership with Africa Legal, to understand the extent and depth of involvement of African entities in facilitating investment into Africa. “As a modern international financial centre we are keen to see how best the Kigali International Financial Centre can more adequately serve and meet the needs of local, regional, and international investors to drive more international and intra-African capital deployment and investment,” she said.
Africa Legal Chief Executive, Scott Cowan said that both international and intra-African capital deployment and investment were important to realise true opportunity and prospects. “Any project which can help identify and understand the hurdles to such growth is to be applauded and Africa Legal is thrilled to be working so closely with a key player such as the Kigali International Financial Centre in doing just that.”
Input into this survey will allow us to assess the state of investment flow and understand the hurdles in the way of this investment increasing.
Help us map the sources and key players involved in facilitating capital flows into different jurisdictions and which are so vital to Africa realising its true potential.
