Absa, OMFIF and GIBS are pleased to invite you to attend the launch of the Absa Africa Financial Markets Index 2018.
Capital markets in Africa have strengthened in the light of a more stable regional political and economic backdrop. This is due in part to the impact of commodity stabilisation and resilience in the face of global economic and political uncertainty.
Now in its second year, the Absa Africa Financial Markets Index records the openness to foreign investment of countries across the continent. The index is a premier indicator of the attractiveness of Africa's capital markets, for use by policy makers, investors and asset managers around the world. Since its launch in 2017, the index has been the benchmark used by most countries to self-reflect on the state of their financial markets and what developmental actions they need to take. This has involved the development of key financial markets frameworks to ensure their markets develop to attract Foreign Direct Investment.
The launch will feature a presentation of the report and key findings, followed by a panel discussion and moderated Q&A session.
A light meal will be served after the event.
