Why Invest in Africa

We invest cash in various listed and unlisted (but promising) small to mid-sized African and US businesses. With the fast economic growth in Africa and the abolishment of regional trade barriers, investments in targeted African countries have never been this promising. Many African countries are currently experiencing eye-popping average annual growth rates of 6%, compared to 1-3% in most developed countries.

Aside from the first-mover advantage, the rate of return on foreign investments in Africa is higher than in any other developing region. With the backdrop of how fast China has grown, we (at Volaray Capital) believe that early entry into high potential African economies provides opportunities to create markets, establish brands, shape industry structure, influence customer preferences, and establish long-term relationships. Your enterprise can help build the Africa of the future and get paid for doing so. A World Bank study forecasts that by 2025, the continents’ top 20 cities could have a combined spending power of $1.5 trillion!

Barron’s warns companies and investors to ignore Africa at their own peril. KFC is looking to expand its operations. Roger Agnelli, the chief executive officer of Brazilian iron ore mining giant Vale SA, is “falling in love with Africa.” Wal-Mart, the value-minded juggernaut, is convinced of the potential, and is exploring a $5B acquisition in Africa.
