Africa | DRC and Zambia to cash in on the copper bull run

Copy of Ipad Frame (25)

Africa may be best known for its wealth of gold, diamonds, and oil, but the mineral-rich continent also hosts significant copper reserves. The red metal has recently been placed in the spotlight as the demand thereof has surged, while its supply has been throttled. This combination has led to a copper bull run.

What you will learn:

  • Who the top copper producers in Africa are and the obstacles they face.
  • What is fuelling the demand for copper, and why there are concerns about a supply deficit.
  • Why this is not a commodity supercycle, and why the price of copper will outperform other commodities in the short to medium term.
