New York State Common Retirement Fund (AUM $180 billion) on the 28 April 2015 announced the Fund’s intention to invest as much as 3% of its assets in Africa in the next five years to diversify its portfolio and boost returns.
To find out why one of the largest U.S. Pension funds is increasing its allocation into Africa, Africonomie and its partners will convene an exclusive forum of institutional funds & managers to explore investable strategies and executable themes in African Markets. The Forum which would hold on June 9 – 10, 2015 in New York will connect pensions, insurance & sovereign funds, DFIs, endowments & foundations, PE Funds and investment professionals with investable strategies and executable themes in African Markets.
This is a unique opportunity to join leading practitioners focused on creating an ecosystem driven by knowledge sharing about what works and what doesn’t work when investing in African Markets. The Series positions stewardship at the heart of investment decision–making by facilitating dialogue, making the case for long-term investing and creating effective engagement among long-term capital owners, investment managers and corporate.
