Africa Risk-Reward Index


Experienced investors know that risk and reward are close companions. There are certain African economies that no serious investor on the continent can reasonably overlook. South Africa, Nigeria and Egypt, the continent’s heavy hitters, are justifiably on everybody’s radar and the recent recovery in Nigeria and South Africa are good signs for businesses.

 

But competitive edge in Africa means not only figuring out the no-brainers, but staying ahead of the pack in knowing what’s next. Control Risks and NKC African Economics together have decades of experience advising investors in Africa. And with them, we have seen risk and reward ebb and flow across the continent. To help track that process, we have developed the Africa Risk-Reward Index. This provides current and prospective investors with a synthesis of risk and opportunity across the continent.
