Video: African Pension Funds Diving into Private Equity

Here’s a panel discussion on the rise of private equity as an investment option for African pension funds. The discussion was held in January at an event sponsored by the Africonomie Group – but the footage was released this week.

From the video description:

Africa pension funds remain underweight in private equity due to restrictive allocations caps that limit or hinder investments into Africa PE funds. However this trend is changing, buoyed by increases in asset under management and better understanding of PE strategies – appetite for PE is growing. This interactive session explores innovative approaches to mainstreaming PE strategies in pensions portfolio.
