This is Africa’s Century – Don’t Miss Out

AFSIC is the leading investment event focused on Africa’s financial services sector. The annual AFSIC, now in its 5th year, attracts financial services companies, predominantly leading Banks, Insurance Companies, Microfinance, Leasing and other regulated financial services companies from almost all parts of the African continent.

The wide spread of companies from across Africa attracts a highly significant proportion of major institutional investors focused on investment into Africa, and those considering the increasing merits of doing so. These investors include Sovereign Wealth Funds, Supranational investors, listed equity and private equity investors, African regulated asset managers, alongside impact investors such as DFIs and microfinance focused investors.

In addition to major Financial Services companies and Investors AFSIC is well represented by major Dealmakers focused on Africa, such as Investment Bankers, Stockbrokers, Corporate Finance experts, Fixed Income and Debt specialists, M&A bankers many of whom attend the Meet African Dealmaker event which takes place the night prior to AFSIC (the 3rd May 2017).

AFSIC has shown continued strong annual growth in delegate numbers with 500 delegates expected to attend in 2017, and welcomed over 100 speakers in solo and moderated panel sessions in 2016.

With companies from over 30 African countries expected to attend in 2017 and 150+ speakers this is your chance to develop and nurture a robust, extremely high quality network of friends, colleagues, investors and business contacts across the continent in preparation for Africa’s continued emergence as the most exciting investment destination in the world.

We very much look forward to seeing you in London from 3th-5th May 2017, Park Plaza Riverbank, London.  Save the Date !
