Africa: Maximizing Investment Opportunities While Minimizing Risk

African markets, boasting 10 of the top 20 fastest growing economies in the world and five of the world’s top 10 reformers in 2012 according to the World Bank’s Doing Business rankings, hold exceptional promise for private equity investors. However, the lack of transparency and underdeveloped legal systems and institutional infrastructure in many African markets make assessing potential investments difficult.
