The Private Equity Landscape under review: The Middle East and Africa story in 2023

Wednesday, April 05, 2023
60 minutes

Global private equity and venture capital firms have increasingly been targeting the Middle East and Africa region as accelerating technology adoption and the shift from economic dependence on fossil fuels provide investment opportunities. Attractive demographics and rising energy prices buoyed the market and supported a relatively stable economic backdrop for investment.

According to S&P Global Market Intelligence’s most recent Private Equity Industry survey 62% of MEA investors believe that Private Equity deal activity will pick up in 2023. While Venture and Growth capital will once more be the strategy to maintain a steady annual amount raised, reflecting a region-wide focus on innovation and funding of new business, this year GPs will be deploying capital at larger rates into Buy & Build and Add-on Investments strategies than ever before, led by increased Sovereign Wealth Fund allocation into these strategies and outside investment in the region also poised to double.

In this webinar, we will explore how GPs are tapping into the investor reserves of SWF that are flush with cash as well as look into what sectors and strategies are trending based on our analysis and current Macroeconomic climate.
