Rand Merchant Bank launches Africa investment guide

Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) is launching a document to help clients with making decisions about investing in Africa, the bank announced on Monday.

The document, titled 'where to invest in Africa?' analyses all 45 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

"The detailed research answers the question our clients might have on investing in Africa," said Louis Jordaan, RMB's head of fixed income, currency and commodities (FICC) Africa. "Our comprehensive analysis of the African investment environment will help us partner our clients in their expansion into Africa."

The document analyses market size, growth on the continent, the operating environment, financing, resources, consumption and infrastructure development.

It also presents snapshots of the 20 largest economies in the region as well as another five countries which are becoming increasingly popular as investment destinations.

The snapshots set out key data, relative rankings, investment opportunities and challenges for these countries.

"Africa is a tricky continent in which to invest but having access to comprehensive information helps with making the correct investment decisions," said Celeste Fauconnier, RMB's FICC research Africa analyst.

It is estimated that over the next few years, the region will have a market of 840 million people, with a total US$1.9 trillion in purchasing power; a sharp reduction in political conflicts; an improved macroeconomic environment, with inflation and budgets broadly under control; and a better business climate owing to regulatory reform and privatisation, among others.
