Africa Risk-Reward Index

Africa Risk-Reward Index 2021: Resilience and Recovery 

In the sixth Africa Risk-Reward Index, Control Risks and Oxford Economics Africa plot the most likely trajectory of Africa’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This recovery will not be simply about GDP growth, but about a wider transformation, innovation, and development in areas such as biotechnology and healthcare. This will raise as many challenges for investors in a range of sectors, as it does opportunities. The Africa Risk-Reward Index plots each country’s performance relative to its African peers by comparing some of the continent’s largest and emerging markets, offering investors a comparative snapshot of market opportunities and risks across Africa.
