AGC introduces transparent and best practice business principals into what has historically been an opaque environment.
AGC provides investors with:
- Excellence in project structuring, execution, management and corporate governance
Although Sub-Saharan Africa has witnessed a substantial improvement in informational efficiency, economic growth and, in some instances, political stability, managing financial risks for corporates on the continent still remains a high priority. Despite attempts to formalise and improve the local equity, interest rate and currency markets, progress is often slow, and is further hindered by legal, regulatory and other market factors. Illiquidity in these markets is exacerbated by the fact that banks are not willing to warehouse substantial illiquid risks and there are almost no secondary markets to lay these off.
AGC addresses this though listing itself and its products on international reputable capital markets, providing liquidity and frontier market returns to its investors. Through this listing investors are provided a highly experienced and accountable team who ensure the implementation of systems and structures to correctly and efficiently support new projects and effective corporate governance, follow-up and systems to protect and grow Africa Growth Corporation.
- Financial Disclosure and Due Diligence
Generally, there is limited financial disclosure, both for listed and unlisted companies operating in the SSA region, which means that access to valid, accurate, complete and reliable financial information can fall short of Investor expectations.
AGC is a US SEC reporting group providing complete and timely reporting to investors. AGC holds all its operations to high international standards that gives investors' confidence and peace of mind. Further, any new operations have extensive due diligence performed with our experienced team
- Sub-Sahara Africa expertise that leverages our excellent in-county partnerships and capabilities
While the right contacts are important in most operations, it is especially critical when the local partner is relied upon to drive local relationships and is likely to have a longer-term involvement in the business. Deficiency of such local partners may act as an obstacle for the investors. It is equally important for investors to work with advisors whom they know and trust, have local knowledge and an on-the-ground presence, which are vital for all operations and transactions.
AGC has developed and honed its experience and relationships in the Sub-Sahara African region over the past several years through identifying and cultivating the right relationships. These relationships together with our deep knowledge of capital markets AGC today has the access and capabilities to help spur the economic and social development of Sub Saharan Africa.
