Africa: Risks and Rewards

29 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 31 May 2014

Does high risk mean high reward for investors in Africa? It's the old cliché that with high risk comes high reward. Is this true of investing in much of modern Africa, and how has the continent adapted to big changes in recent years such as the influx of money from China?

At the Oxford Africa conference hosted by the Saïd Business School, Manuela Saragosa explores the changing nature of risk across Africa with the chief executive of Barclays Africa; Kennedy Bungane, director of the Senegal headquartered private equity AFIG fund; Stephane Le Bouder; and professor Eric Thun, lecturer in Chinese Business at Saïd Business School.
