Changing the Narrative

The Narrative

Africa has for the longest time been painted with images such as poverty, underdeveloped, and ODA, and has been continuously the most exposed and vulnerable to global crises such as rising interest rates, geopolitical tensions, climate change, and recently covid pandemic.

However, with new technologies, rapid population growth, and rich natural resources from agriculture to rare earth materials, Africa is on the cusp of becoming one of the most strategically important geographies on Earth with the potential to redefine many status quo practices.

With many of the traditional rule-of-law of finance and investing being put into question, we see Africa and the Global South playing a more principal role in the Global Economy arena in the future.
