Conference Description:

EMEA Finance (part of the Exporta Group) is proud to launch its first high-level conference, focused on the debt and equity markets across Africa.

Even during the challenging market conditions of recent years, Africa’s growth story has opened exciting opportunities for corporates, financiers and intermediaries. New and established stock markets are attracting ambitious companies and eager investors. The syndicated loan market has been kept busy with an increasing need for infrastructure development in projects including power and transport. Sovereign and sub-sovereign issuances from across the continent have been welcomed as a “safe haven” by investors in the face of troubles in other regions.

This comprehensive one-day conference will showcase the growing importance of Africa’s capital markets, highlighting key companies, their groundbreaking deals and the banks and other advisers that have helped guide them to completion.

With a fast-paced format that will include detailed case studies and informed debate and discussion, this is a must-attend event for corporate executives, investment bankers and all dealmakers keen to capitalise on Africa’s undoubted promise in the coming years.

Among the issues to be discussed over the day’s proceedings:

• Improving access to African capital markets for investors
• Corporate opportunities: How to make the most of Africa’s new liquidity
• Assessing the appetite for sovereign debt in the current global climate
• Equity markets: Highlighting new and established exchanges
• The growth of Africa’s depositary receipt market
• Tracking the development of key markets such as Nigeria
• Satisfying the demand for corporate/sovereign loans and demand for syndications
