14th Annual AVCA Conference

The Annual AVCA Conference is the largest private equity gathering globally, attracting investors who collectively manage over US$1.5trn in assets. Over the past 13 years, the AVCA conference has become the most important forum for promoting, developing, and stimulating private investment in Africa. The conference continues to be a rallying beacon, shedding light on the vast opportunities available to global investors, and guiding the industry with informative research and thought leadership.
Starting in 2003 in Cameroon, AVCA has held conferences in Botswana, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, and Tunisia with the goal of exposing investors to the diverse prospective investment markets across the continent.

The 14th Annual AVCA Conference is returning to francophone Africa for the first time in ten years.

Côte d’Ivoire is a prime destination for foreign direct investment due to its strong GDP growth, stable political environment, excellent infrastructure, and emergence as the regional hub for Francophone West Africa.

Our data shows that private equity investment in Côte d’Ivoire has doubled between 2010-2012 and 2013-2015, with consumer-driven sectors, industrials and energy attracting the bulk of investment.

AVCA is extremely pleased to bring investors to one of the fastest growing countries in the world.
