Private Debt Market Study

Closing date

27.05.2021 12:00 pm

We wish to engage a consultant to undertake a study on the private debt markets in Africa. The study will inter alia undertake an assessment of the private debt market landscape in Africa, test the demand for private debt as an asset class for investment by institutional investors and proffer insights and recommendations on specific initiatives to be implemented to support the development and growth of this market segment as part of the Africa Private Equity and Private Debt programme.

This study is expected to help in facilitating a better understanding of the landscape of the private debt market in Africa. This will include size, evolution, management, structure, investment sectors, regulation and investor appetite. The findings will feed into the other initiatives envisaged under FSD Africa’s Africa Private Equity and Private Debt programmes such as transaction support, regulatory initiatives and knowledge and capacity building engagements. More broadly, this study is expected to provide insights into the potential role that private debt markets could play in Africa and provide specific recommendations on how to increase the flow of institutional capital into these markets.
