The Africa Risk-Reward Index 2023: Opportunity through adversity

As multiple crises demand the world’s attention and geopolitical divides deepen, Africa finds its economic recovery under threat. The war in Ukraine, a global surge in inflation, security fragility and climate shocks have added significant pressure, exacerbated uncertainty and forced geopolitical changes that will redefine Africa’s role on the global stage.  

Although a polarised world poses serious risks for Africa, the continent has always proved its resilience in the face of challenges and is still a place of opportunity. For African countries and investors, the time is now. 
Control Risks and Oxford Economics Africa are pleased to launch the eighth edition of the Africa Risk-Reward Index. The index illustrates the evolution of the investment landscape in major African markets and provides a grounded, longer-term outlook of key trends shaping investment in these economies. It also offers a comparative snapshot of market opportunities and risks across the continent, which will allow your organisation to develop an informed strategy for growing your business or investing in Africa.

The potential in Africa is real, vast, and attainable. But when it comes to unlocking this potential and achieving sustainable returns on investment, organisations will only find success if they have a thorough understanding the local political and socio-economic context, conduct comprehensive due diligence on projects and partners, and implement a robust risk mitigation plan to see their investments through.  
For more than 40 years, Control Risks has been helping clients prepare and assess their investment risks and opportunities in Africa. With eight offices in five countries across the continent, supported by an experienced team of more than 400 people and an extensive on-the-ground network, we can provide the support our clients need. We work with the some of the largest investors and multinationals across 
the region as well as the most respected African companies, from mining and energy to NGOs, technology and telecommunications.
