Private equity to spur Africa’s essential service development


A landmark Covid-19 Response Report (CRR), produced by Oxford Business Group (OBG) in partnership with the African Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (AVCA), will provide insights into the investment opportunities emerging in essential infrastructure and services as the continent works to recover from the economic impact of the pandemic.
Titled “Private Equity and Venture Capital in Africa”, the CRR represents OBG’s first pan-African CRR report and comes in the year AVCA marks its 20th anniversary.
The CRR will provide in-depth analysis of the Covid-19 pandemic’s impact on private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) activity in an easy-to-navigate and accessible format, focusing on key data and infographics relating to the region’s socio-economic landscape.
It will chart the industry’s growth story in recent years, featuring details of the industry’s performance since 2014, and provide a regional breakdown of activity. It will also examine the latest developments and trends following the outbreak of the virus, including both investments and exits.
