Africa Investment Horizons

New film shows enormous investment opportunities where least expected

WHAT:     “AFRICA INVESTMENT HORIZONS,”
a new documentary that premiered at the New York Stock Exchange and U.S. Chamber of Commerce, shows the tremendous gains being made in Africa’s vibrant emerging markets and proves one surprising fact – that the highest rate of return on direct investment is found on the continent most people think of as an economic wasteland.

 
 

With the current U.S. economic downturn, investors are looking for new markets.  This one-hour documentary, produced by Carol Pineau, director and producer of the award-winning documentary, Africa Open for Business, shows that Africa may be the next untapped investment destination. 

 
 

“AFRICA INVESTMENT HORIZONS” presents compelling narratives from international and African business leaders on the tremendous potential of Africa’s emerging markets and how their investments have succeeded beyond expectations despite the challenging business climate.  Stories range from the largest equity fund in Africa where the price of entry is $5-million, to a mutual fund in Ghana that has averaged 60% annual returns and requires a minimum investment of about $55. 

 
 

Big investors have been investing in Africa for more than a decade, but most have kept quiet about the astonishing returns, preferring to keep the investing world’s final frontier to themselves – until now.
