African Infrastructure Investors Line Up for Ai Road Show

Africa investor (Ai), a leading international investment and communications group, has announced that its Africa Infrastructure Investment Project Roadshow, taking place in Cape Town, South Africa on June 2-3, is attracting both African and global infrastructure investors as well as private sector project developers, PPP and Privatisation Units. According to a press release from the official Public Relations partner, The Quadrant Company, the Summit will bring together Africa’s leading private sector project developers and government sponsors to engage institutional infrastructure investors, pension funds and sovereign wealth funds.
Commenting on the summit, Hubert Danso, the Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairman of Africa investor stated that, “While infrastructure investment returns in Africa outstrip that of their peers in global infrastructure markets, intermediation between project developers and infrastructure investors remains an area in need of professional intermediation. “We are therefore delighted that this infrastructure investment roadshow will play an important role in facilitating support for our portfolio of bankable infrastructure projects with our institutional investment pension and sovereign wealth fund partners.” Danso added that, the first day’s invitation-only CEO level Summit which is tagged, the Ai CEO Infrastructure Project Developers Summit, will be dedicated to project developers and will address a range of project co-development opportunities and industry-related issues. According to him, co-investment opportunities will be discussed and presentations will be received from a series of project developers on the second day of the Ai CEO Infrastructure Investment Summit. Both Summits will host prestigious Awards ceremonies open to receiving entries from public and private sector infrastructure developers, advisors and investors working in Africa.
