AFSIC 2017 – 5th Africa Financial Services Investment Conference

AFSIC is the leading investment event focused on Africa’s financial services sector. The annual AFSIC, now in its 5th year, attracts financial services companies, predominantly leading Banks, Insurance Companies, Microfinance, Leasing and other regulated financial services companies from almost all parts of the African continent. AFSIC 2017, 3-5th May 2017 in London, will again be attended by a record number of delegates.

The wide spread of financial services companies attending from across Africa attracts a highly significant proportion of major institutional investors focused on investment into Africa, and those considering the increasing merits of doing so. These investors include Sovereign Wealth Funds, Supranational investors, listed
equity and private equity investors, African regulated asset managers, alongside impact investors such as Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) and microfinance focused investors.

This year in conjunction with FSD Africa, AFSIC 2017 is hosting a new session focused on bringing opportunities in frontier financial
markets which are often overlooked to the attention of investors.  To begin, FSDA’s fragile states portfolio will focus on three countries: the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe. It will also prioritise two themes: forcibly displaced people and remittances and these are reflected in the content of the FSD Africa sponsored panels and solos during AFSIC 2017.

Banks, Insurance, Microfinance and Leasing companies and other African focused Financial Services companies from across Africa attend the annual AFSIC conference. Multiple opportunities for African Financial Services companies to network with Investors are built into the event Programme. Want to widen your deal network further across Africa?
