THIS book by David Matean, head of corporate finance at Faida Investment Bank in Nairobi, Kenya, is subtitled “A guide to the business and investment opportunities in emerging Africa”. The emerging Africa is sub-Saharan Africa, excluding South Africa. He acknowledges the severe data gaps, but the book is an excellent guide to what has shaped this region in the past 50 years and what opportunities abound in the next 20.
As Africa has progressed from the “hopeless continent” to the “hopeful continent” over the past decade, investment managers and private equity have increasingly been drawn to the region, so this is a timely primer on what makes this region the second-fastest (after Asia, excluding Japan) growing region in the world.
