Why Africa, Why Now?
Why Africa, Why Now?
We see three broad growth themes in business in Africa that should be top of mind for the management and directors of global firms and their shareholders:
Improving governance: Reduces risk and opens up new investable areas.
Urbanization and rise of a middle class: Means rising consumer spending. Even the poorest shoppers have money to spend. Thriving informal economies provide spending power not captured in official statistics, creating underappreciated levels of demand.
Infrastructure-building: enables industrialization. China’s engagement has yielded rapid rollout of new infrastructure capacity. Supply begets demand—more road, rail, power, airport, and port capacity is a clear stimulus to economic growth and demand.
What does African Sunrise Partners Do?We are 100% focused on sub-Saharan Africa, viewed through the lens of private-sector businesses and investors. We bring a point of view shaped by extensive global equity research experience, framed by several years spent analyzing the rise of China’s new class of global competitors and their global ambitions.
We visit Africa regularly. We speak with business leaders and decision-makers, government officials, and private investors. We connect information, ideas, and themes across sectors and regions.
We publish 8-10 reports per year, including our flagship Insight report and One-on-One interviews. Contact [email protected] for a sample report.
