About this event:
FT Business, in partnership with the South African Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (SAVCA), and the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association (EMPEA), presents Private Equity in Southern Africa 2012, a leadership summit for private equity and venture capitalist investors.
South Africa’s addition in the BRIC group of countries in 2011 has put the country firmly on the investment map for the coming years. It is a crucial recognition of the country and continent in a world where emerging markets are taking the lead in driving global economic recovery, and it will be a key factor in defining the future growth of the private equity industry across Southern Africa.
As the industry prepares to capitalise on the opportunities of BRIC membership and work to increase the R97.6bn in funds under management at the end of 2010, this event will provide a high-level platform for debate on the prospects ahead. Featuring a combination of keynote addresses, lively panel discussions and informative case studies, attendees will benefit from the latest information and insights on talent retention at fund and portfolio company level, the key regional and sectoral opportunities, the entry and exit strategies for private equity investors and the growing importance of ESG and value creation to LPs.
