Unlocking Investment Horizons: A Glimpse into AFSIC London 2023

In the vibrant heart of London, the tenth annual AFSIC event unfolded its transformative narrative in early October 2023, placing a spotlight on dedicated investments. AFSIC, the zenith for asset management firms with a keen eye on African investments, presented an exclusive platform where industry leaders from diverse sectors converged – from banking and fintech innovation to sustainable growth, agriculture, and power.

Over the past decade, AFSIC has grown into a physical meeting ground for Africa’s major investors, significant companies, and key regional and national trade agencies. Renowned for fostering networking, discussions, and the execution of impactful investment deals, AFSIC consistently drives growth and success for African companies in search of funding and those eyeing global expansion.

The 2023 conference was a transformative experience, enabling attendees to unearth fresh investment opportunities, cultivate meaningful business partnerships, and exchange crucial insights into the African market. The introduction of the AFSIC Event and Meeting App facilitated engagement and networking before, during, and after the event.

AFSIC 2023 elevated networking to new heights, offering opportunities for robust relationships among investors, financial intermediaries, and African business leaders. The event featured multiple presentation and panel streams, discussions, networking events, exhibition stands, business matchmaking meetings, and seminars.

Tom Pearson, Chief Commercial Officer of Africa Legal, observed, “It was clear from the buzz and inter-delegate engagement at this year’s AFSIC that international interest in African markets is alive and well.” Notably, the attendance saw a significant increase from leading law firms across the continent.

Operated by Africa Events Limited (AEL) and African Investments Limited, AFSIC aligns with two other platforms – AFSIC African Investments Dashboard and Africa Business Opportunities Dashboard. AEL’s success lies in leveraging in-house developed digital processes and automated matching platforms, earning them the 2022 Global Salesforce Innovation Award for Financial Services.

The 2023 conference unveiled some of the most promising investment opportunities listed on the AFSIC African Investments Dashboard, which boasts over 1000 investor-ready projects. The AFSIC 2023 Deal Book, featuring 120+ of Africa’s most exciting investment prospects, garnered significant attention.

AFSIC 2023 welcomed institutional investors representing funds and organizations with over $1 trillion in Assets under Management. The enhanced networking sessions facilitated interactions with over 300 investors. Country-investment summits delved into the macro- and micro-investment climates of several of Africa’s largest and fastest-growing economies. Ethiopia took center stage, with the FSD Ethiopian team engaging with various institutions, promoting climate finance initiatives, and raising capital for the upcoming Ethiopian Stock Exchange.
