There is always opportunity to grow in the face of change. But your roots need to be strong and your centre resilient.
“One can’t invest in averages. Every project happens in a specific industry and a specific place. And the more diversified and less risky a portfolio gets, the smaller the return. So it follows that the real-life, diverse, unpredictable Africa – not the Africa of statistical averages - remains complicated to navigate,” commented Kenny Fihla, Chief Executive, Corporate and Investment Banking, Standard Bank. “When it comes to investing successfully in Africa, or to raising capital for African corporations and sovereigns, there are no substitutes for expert insight, detailed local knowledge, and strong networks.“

We know that trust is the most powerful currency, and that long and stable partnerships hold the greatest value.
