Event description

Description

In early 2018, Allianz Global Investors (AGI) made history by becoming the first insurance investor in the Emerging Africa Infrastructure Fund (EAIF), committing nearly $120 million in a structured 12-year loan. The Infrastructure Consortium for Africa indicated that $81.6 billion of investments were committed to infrastructure development in Africa in 2017. Yet according to the 2019 African Development Bank Report , $130 - $170 billion per year in investment is needed to close Africa's infrastructure gap.

With initiatives like the African Development Bank's Programme for Infrastructure Devleopment in Africa (PIDA), the first steps have been made. Yet commentators are concerned by the lack of private sector activity within the area. AGI's investment looks promising.

Join Invest Africa as we discuss what the future holds for infrastructure in Africa and how best to bridge the gap.
