Africa can test an investor’s patience, but with the highest economic growth rates in the world, investors now realise there is money to be made in West Africa
For those bold and diligent enough to explore, we can work with you to develop ground floor investment opportunities that exist in the solar power, renewable energy, fashion, lifestyle, FMCG, internet, mobile, ICT, IT, heavy machinery, civil engineering and infrastructure markets in West Africa.
West Africa’s potential market of over 270 million consumers, offers the best commercial & trade investment opportunities for businesses and companies looking for new and emerging markets.
Import Export, Trade & Business Investments In Africa
West Africa’s formalising and maturing economies have driven a half century or more of growth and will continue to do so as the fast growing youth population relocate to the cities in search of jobs.
At the same time, African countries are beginning to place bets on non-commodity areas where they can be competitive. And they are packaging themselves to appeal to a broader set of investors.
West Africa is also seeing a returning diaspora that recognizes the potential and opportunities in their own countries.
This population supports local economic growth with their skills and talent, by acting as “first movers”, investing back in their communities.
We believe the growing purchasing power of the emerging middle class will be the strongest and most persistent driver of investment in the region over the coming decades.
Renewable Energy Investments In Africa – In energy, technology, supply chain design and other areas, Africa has the ability to look at what works elsewhere then fashion its own renewable energy solutions.
Africa can openly embrace renewable energy technology and the latest innovative development ideas, with no historical imprint from which to break free.
Medical & Healthcare Business Investments – Health is becoming big business in Africa as African countries urbanise. Disease patterns are changing and more people are becoming able to pay for healthcare or buy health insurance.
Investment opportunities exist in care delivery, medical supply and distribution and most African healthcare systems are developing from a woefully low base. Those who can afford treatment often travel to India, Turkey and Europe.
FMCG, Retail, Lifestyle & Fashion Investments – With the growth of Africa’s middle class, we’re seeing the development of new aspirations and expectations. Educated, urban professionals are young, brand-aware and sophisticated in terms of their consumption.
Retailers and consumer brands need to anticipate and drive buying preferences in FMCG, fashion, home and lifestyle products, but they know they need international standard supply chains if they are to meet demand.
Internet, Mobile, ICT, IT & Tech Investments – Africa is witnessing an information technology (IT) or digital revolution that is transforming traditional ways of business and service delivery.
IT is a leading enabler in the new economy and is bringing about efficiency, productivity and employment and is transforming social service delivery in health, education, culture and environmental management.
Infrastructure Investment Opportunities – Massive investment is leading to major upgrades and expansion at African ports and airports, but Africa’s growth potential depends on local, national and regional road, rail and air connections.
Roads and rail lines are sparse, decrepit and over-burdened. Africa’s lack of efficient storage and distribution infrastructure hinders businesses, entrepreneurs and farmers.
