Africa represents a colossal investment opportunity. Containing 23 percent of the world's landmass and nearly one billion people, the continent has exceeded world average growth for the past eight years and is now the fastest growing region in the world. Taken as a whole, African GDP is sixth in the world and should pass Germany in the next few years. Yet the region remains overlooked in terms of investment opportunities such that the supply of capital relative to demand is tilted in favor of investors; as a result, investments can be structured to mitigate risks.
