Unlocking Africa Pension Capital for Private Equity

EMPEA recently participated in the West Africa Private Equity Roundtable, an event that brought together representatives from pension funds, insurance companies and regulatory bodies in Ghana and Nigeria with the goal of educating and, in the process, gaining a better understanding of the major constraints hindering local participation in private equity. In addition, J-P Fourie of SAVCA shares his perspective on how recent and proposed changes to regulation in South Africa are opening up opportunities for local pension fund investment in the asset class.
