African pension funds are estimated to have invested some $3.8bn – $5.7bn in private equity and have the scope to invest another $29bn.
This investment capital could have a large impact on Africa’s development.
With this in mind, AME Trade launched the 1st Pension Funds and Alternative Investments Africa conference, that was held in Mauritius in March 2017.
The event attracted 132 attendees, 34 speakers and 13 media representatives, from different countries.
Working with a strong industry based advisory committee, the 2nd Pension Funds and Alternative Investment Africa conference programme has been designed to allow pension and social security funds to discuss the investment portfolio, options and opportunities available needed to diversify their investment portfolios and to showcase regulatory reforms. It will also provide a platform to allow the asset class players and fund managers to work together with institutional investors to develop new products and offerings and essentially, to invest in the future development of Africa.
2nd Pension Funds and Alternative Investments Conference – Transforming Institutional Investment in Africa
Thank you again for the organization of the conference. It was very interesting for us, good discussions and great speakers.
PIAFRICA 2017 was very useful from the networking point of view and the issues discussed were critical issues cutting across the board. The event helped me to realise the problems I am dealing with are common problems and hopefully we will find a common solution at the conference to ease doing the business.
Excellent composition of speakers.
Thank you for the exposure. Looking forward to more similar events.
Pooling together the various high profiled intellectual resources in the space of social security across the continent to discuss investment topical issues has inspired a shift in thinking on the approach to this subject. Well done AME Trade.
It was excellent.
