MN Capital Group will host pension funds, fund managers, investors and other stakeholders for a dialogue on how the industry can support infrastructure financing.
This morning, organisers said the forum seeks to address matters affecting and impacting investing in Africa from asset owners‘ perspective as well as to shine a spotlight on why investing in infrastructure is paramount to Africa’s economic recovery.
Briefing on the event, MN Capital Group managing director, Michael Ndinisa, said the forum is designed to help the investment industry particularly Africa to deliver returns on investment through responsible investing and the building of a sustainable future.
“This is a gathering for fund managers, institutional investors, investment consultants, wealth managers, high-level multi-sectoral stakeholders in the infrastructure sectors as well as expert advisors,” he said.
Ndinisa said the event is a step towards developing an ecosystem of asset owners, fund managers and investment professionals with an appetite to invest in infrastructure.
