About this report
We believe Africa is the last frontier of emerging markets with a superior risk:return ratio. Investment in infrastructure assets on the continent therefore goes a step further to providing investors with distinct exposure to a rare asset class.
Currently the most significant constraint to growth in Africa is the lack of infrastructure, specifically in the energy, ICT, transport and water and sanitation sectors. The multiplier effect created by infrastructure development drives economic growth and upliftment, which makes infrastructure-focused private equity funds, like PAIDF, an ideal vehicle for fulfilling an impact investment mandate.
