We're supporting the African Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (AVCA) Conference in Marrakech this month. The event is a great way of bringing together investors in Africa to share ideas and discuss opportunities.
The event is the largest private equity gathering globally, attracting investors who collectively manage over US$1.5trn in assets. Over the past 15 years, the AVCA conference has become the most important forum for promoting, developing, and stimulating private investment in Africa.
We will be taking an active role in events during the conference, with Murray Grant, Managing Director, Intermediated Equity, participating in several discussions.
You can find out more about the conference here.
