The TMT Finance and Investment Africa event takes place at America Square in the City of London and will feature presentations from industry leaders on the latest investment opportunities and strategies, topical debate and high end networking for deal focused professionals. The event will bring together the leading players to focus on telecom investment and acquisition strategies at a critical time for the industry.

Managing director of BroadGroup TMT Ventures, Dominic Lowndes explained, “Investment into African telecoms is mushrooming this year as global telecom operators race to seize market share in highly challenging and disparate markets. Bharti, MTN, Vodafone, France Telecom, Telecom Egypt and Etisalat have all been attempting major acquisitions recently, while towers sales, infrastructure investment opportunities and new licences are available across the continent. Over US$30bn worth of mergers and acquisitions activity is predicted this year already. The TMT Finance Africa conference brings together the key players active in these transactions and other telecom investment projects.”

Raising Finance for Africa – local and international debt and equity capital raising, vendor, alternative and development financing initiatives.
