Financial Services is extremely critical to the development of a strong economy. Africa has a huge need as it has a lot of new financial services sector participants.
This includes the tens of millions of Africans that remain unbanked and are excluded from other financial services like insurance, credit, investment and saving solutions.
By developing a strong financial sector, Africa can begin to harness the collective financial power of its citizens and invest in productive resources which over time will develop into a strong financial base for the African economy.
In this course, we will discuss specific pathways through which investors can access these markets through the study of specific case studies in lending, investing, insurance and banking.

Message from Evans Osemwegie
I am investing in Africa, because Africa is the investment of the century. As I look across the globe right now, I am seeing strong investment opportunities only in Africa. The fundamentals are very attractive, risk has become manageable, volatility has become more stable as African governments have taken major steps towards reformation. Despite, all of these advances, the global financial markets are still placing a very high risk premium on investments in Africa. This has created a gap between perceived risks and actual risks.
The result of this gap in risk perception, has created another gap, which is between price and value. Therefore, from an investor's perspective, the value of an investment in Africa is much greater than the price, this makes returns on investments in Africa on a risk adjusted basis the most superior in the world today and this is likely to continue in the foreseeable future.
Africa has about 1,2 billion people right now, almost the same as China. We saw the global boom that took place when China industrialized. I believe that we will see an economic boom of a greater scale right now as Africa industrializes. It is much better than China for three main reasons:
- It has all the resources that it needs internally, so it does not have to import anything;
- It has a very young and growing population;
- It is rapidly industrializing but its pattern of industrializing is very unusual. This is because Africa has rapidly adopted technology, therefore it is industrializing at a faster pace than other nations and regions have done historically. The overall results of this is greater productivity and productivity, more than anything else is responsible for the wealth of nations.
These three reasons alone gives it a major head start over other nations and regions that previously industrialized. Finally, the African Free Trade Agreement will unlock Africa’s huge internal markets, which will make it almost completely independent from the world and it will be able to negotiate on its own terms.
The main purpose for this course is to gather a group of 100 investors that will be trained in key sectors across the African economy and eventually, they will become co investors with us investing in African assets. Throughout the course, we will supply them with the tools needed to build a strong portfolio of African investments and these will be called ‘’Africa's Industrialization Partners’’, because our investment strategy is to industrialize Africa through these 12 sectors.
