Many of Africa’s most significant investors attend AFSIC with the objective of meeting banks, insurance companies, microfinance, leasing and other regulated financial services companies, as well as dealmakers and investment bankers from across the entire African continent.

AFSIC has shown continued strong growth in delegate numbers and the quality of attendees in 2016 and welcomed over 100 speakers in solo and moderated panel sessions.

100+ Expert Speakers  covered a wide range of highly relevant topics on Africa’s Financial Services sector including the following topics:

  • The Listed African Bank Sector is Overvalued and Offers no Value for the Level of Risk
  • Microfinance in Africa – Still a Growth Story?
