Here are 5 reasons why you should invest in Africa.

Africa is “undiscovered”

Africa is “undiscovered” and yet blessed in abundance with natural resources. It will continue to profit from the rising global demand for oil, natural gas, minerals, food, and other natural resources. 

From a global investment perspective, Africa has what could be very low valuations both in African debt and equity investments. These offer attractive entry points, especially when compared to valuations in many more developed markets.

A massive population boom

Africa is experiencing a massive population boom, currently 17% of the world’s population is African. According to the Financial Times, Sub-Saharan Africa’s population will double over the next 30 years, adding 1bn people and putting it on track to overtake central and south Asia soon after as the world’s most populous region.

Improved communication

The internet, and other forms of communication such as mobile phones have increasingly led to global companies “offshoring” in Africa to benefit from the low wage costs, and increasingly well-educated workforce.

A diversified economy

The African economy has increasingly become diversified. There has been rapid growth in new sectors such as telecommunications, consumption and infrastructure. The Increasing electrification that is happening in Africa right now is also backing this economy diversification.

Improved fiscal policy

Africa is benefiting from a significantly improved fiscal policy over the past three decades. This is resulting into amongst other things,

  • Lower interest rates
