A Field Guide to African Stock Markets
Welcome to InvestingInAfrica.net – your guide to profitable opportunities in African stock markets.
Africa is a continent on the rise.
Thanks to a decade of unprecedented political stability, improved health and education, and rapidly expanding infrastructure, African economies now rank among the fastest-growing across the globe. It’s a place full of hopeful and enterprising people who are confident of an even brighter future.
This is why I believe African stock markets are home to some of the most attractive investments in the world today.
The goal of this site is to help you access and profit from these opportunities.
Here are a few ways we can help you get started investing on the continent:

My interest in Africa stems from a three-year volunteer term spent in the Southern African nation of Lesotho in the late 1990s. Like many other visitors to the region, I returned home a card-carrying Afrophile.
In the years since, I’ve sought to remain as engaged with the continent as possible. This has taken many forms. I’ve worked as a human rights advocate and writer, and, more recently, as an equity analyst and fund manager. Now, I’m Director of Research with Africa Capital Group, write an investment column for AFKInsider, and contribute frequently to Africa investor magazine.
I’m also a husband and dad and live in the small, but vibrant, city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Through this blog, I attempt to spotlight African companies that contribute to human development while delivering market-beating returns to their investors.
I’ve written a bit more about my interest in African investments here.
