Renaissance Capital, an emerging and frontier markets’ investment bank, says it will bring together local and international investors to deliberate on investment opportunities.
A statement from the firm said that it planned to do this during its upcoming 10th annual Pan-Africa 1:1 Investor Conference in Lagos.
“There would be closed-door one-on-one meetings between top global and local investors from across the globe and corporate representatives to discuss investment opportunities in Nigeria and other fast-growing economies on the continent,” the firm said.
The Chief Executive Officer, Renaissance Capital, Nigeria, Temitope Popoola, said, “We expect discussions at this year’s event to be driven by expectations for the new political environment, considering the recently concluded elections.
“Renaissance Capital remains committed to Africa, which is evidenced by our growing share of market and deal pipeline in each of our core regions in the continent, particularly Nigeria. We successfully priced a debut $450m 9.50 per cent five-year Reg S/144A bond offering for Ecobank Transnational Incorporated, a leading pan-African bank and we are currently involved in several landmark transactions with key clients.”
According to the statement, the opening ceremony will include a keynote address by the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer, Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission, Yewande Sadiku; while the Global Chief Economist, Renaissance Capital, Charles Robertson, would give a talk on Nigeria’s structural reform and diversification from oil dependency as key to industrialisation.
