Control Risks’ and Oxford Economics’ Africa experts are pleased to present the fourth edition of the Africa Risk-Reward Index. The index captures the evolution of the investment landscape in major Africa markets for both corporate decision-makers and financial investors and maps the trade-offs between risk and reward across the continent’s economies.
To the inexperienced investor in Africa the index offers a comparative snapshot of market opportunities and risks across the continent – where should you start looking if you need to devise a market entry strategy into a continent that is brimming with opportunity but which is so vast and so poorly understood.
To the more seasoned Africa investor the index offers a grounded, longer-term outlook of key trends shaping the investment landscape in major African economies and some suggestions of successful strategies for different contexts. Our analysis is based on our experts’ view of structural political and economic features of these markets that go beyond the headline-grabbing news and noise surrounding the topic of investment into Africa.
