Capital Markets Africa 2017 Conference

Taking place in Nairobi on May 11 and 12, 2017

Africa’s long-term economic success is intrinsically linked to the successful development of its capital markets, but the challenges are significant.  Strengthening them is essential if Africa is to fulfill its significant potential.  More robust stock and bond markets will further encourage economic growth on the continent but what else needs to be done for countries to expand their capital markets in an ever-changing world?

The event will be chaired by Georgina Baker, IFC’s Deputy Treasurer and the audience will include global and African investors, financial institutions, stock exchanges, regulators and other market participants who will discuss the opportunities and impediments to creating efficient financial markets in Africa
