Details

Capital markets in Africa have strengthened in the light of the more stable regional political and economic backdrop. This is due in part to the impact of commodity stabilisation and resilience in the face of global economic and political uncertainty.

The 2018 Absa Africa Financial Markets Index will launch in Bali alongside the IMF-World Bank Group meetings. In its second year, the index is a premier indicator of the attractiveness of Africa’s capital markets, for use by investors and asset managers around the world. Since its inception in 2017, the index has been the benchmark used by most countries to reflect on the state of their financial markets and what developmental actions they need to take. This has involved the development of key financial frameworks to ensure their market develop to attract Foreign Direct Investment.
