    • Cross border co-investment
    • Other asset class allocation, other than fixed income
    • Collaboration with other pension funds
  • Private equity as an asset class: conversations and progress is beginning to happen across the board, there is an imbalance of non-African pension funds investing in African private equity funds. It is important that African Pension funds start to engage more with this asset class.
