We can’t believe that another year is almost over. In the last issue of 2022 we interviewed two investment firms focused on emerging markets and Africa. Asha Mehta, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Global Delta Capital, and Brian Odhiambo Waswani, Partner at Novastar, told Africa Global Funds about their companies, investment strategies and opportunities they see in Africa. Read on pp.14-15 and p.17.
In this month’s issue, Wola Asase and Victoria Enoc-Ahiamadu of Africa Finance Corporation write about repack programs in Africa. They say that the repack of the multilateral’s loan helps to scale up billions into trillions, and aligns securities to the preferred risk-return profile of institutional investors (p.16).
In addition, Alex Davidson of Standard Bank, believes that South Africa’s diverse portfolio of investment sectors continues to provide a multitude of opportunities for local and Foreign Direct Investment. Read more on p.22.
On the fundraising front, Aruwa Capital Management has closed its first institutional fund, which was oversubscribed, surpassing a target of $20m. Meanwhile, Goodwell Investments has launched uMunthu II, aiming to raise €150m (pp. 4-5).
We at Africa Global Funds would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being our loyal readers. And we hope we can continue doing business together in the forthcoming year. In the meantime, have a wonderful Christmas and a happy holiday season!
