Effective Finance & Treasury in Africa

London, United Kingdom, March 2018

Overcome the challenges. Maximise the opportunities.

If you are operating in Africa, or thinking about it – you need to join us in London. This essential one-day event will show you how to unlock the potential of this dynamic region. The discussions will be highly practical – focusing on what you can do and how to do it. You will meet other treasurers and finance professionals operating in Africa facing the same challenges as you and finding ways to overcome them. You will also meet the key banks and solution providers operating in the region.


The ‘Africa rising’ narrative may have given way to ‘Africa stalling’ as the commodity super cycle swung into reverse, but ‘Africa diverging’ is a more realistic view of the current state of affairs and one that supports a market by market approach to building trade and investment relations across the continent. Moreover, longer-term trends of labour force growth, urbanisation and industrialisation promise to bring real change and depth to markets alongside a potential transformation of the business environment.

So what are the portents for companies invested in Africa in the here and now? It seems patience and perseverance are pre-requisites across a continent where so many languages and cultures combine with different legal and regulatory environments. The riches of Africa are well recognised – it remains a landscape of tantalising opportunity albeit one, fraught with challenge.

  • Banking Services Provision in Africa – an RFP Roadmap
