Institutional investors and their money managers still consider Nigeria to be in the long-term Africa’s most viable investment destination and the continent’s most dynamic private markets. Despite growing indebtedness to foreign and local creditors, shrinking economy, depressed currency, and uncertainty in the global political scene. Given the uncertain outlook that’s likely to prevail, what makes investing in Nigeria so attractive? How should investors invest in Africa’s largest economy? What and where are the investable alternatives?
With this year’s theme, implementing drivers and enablers for financial and impact returns, the Africa Alternative Investment Intensive (AAII) – 2018 Nigeria Forum will enable critical and thought-provoking discussions on how to successfully navigate a rapidly growing, risky, illiquid and relatively non-transparent alternatives markets.
Held under the Chatham House Rule, the AAII – 2018 Nigeria forum will bring together a carefully selected ecosystem of investment professionals and industry stakeholders to examine what works and what doesn't work when investing in Nigeria's private markets and alternative assets (infrastructure debt, real estate, alternative credit, private equity and debt). The forum will highlight investable strategies, executable themes and showcase select investment opportunities.
