Africa's Debt: Freeze, Forgive or Forget?
24 June 2020, 13:00 BST | Online
What official debt relief means for companies, currencies, economies – and moral hazard
Most of Africa spends more on servicing debt to wealthy countries and investors than on healthcare. Few would argue such imbalances demand radical change. But with some rich-nation and African lawmakers agitating for “extensive debt forgiveness,” many worry about unintended consequences – not least the impact on Africa’s future access to global capital markets, rewarding fiscal largesse and sending a green light to state capture and corruption.
So, what is the solution? What are the lessons from relief provided after the global financial crisis and the HIPC initiative? What safety nets and assurances are necessary for debt relief to bring long-term benefits? What action beyond debt relief would best serve Africa in its battles against Covid-19 and unprecedented economic threats? And how does China – accounting for more than a third of African debt – factor in all of this?
· Elizabeth Rossiello, Founder & CEO, AZA
· Joseph Rohm, Managing Director and Fund Manager, Adventis
· Von Kemedi, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Alluvial Agriculture
Closing remarks: His Highness Muhammad Sanusi II (former Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria)
Opening remarks & moderator: Boason Omofaye, Senior Consultant, New Markets Media & Intelligence

Fund Forum Global ESG & Impact
12-13 November 2019 | Amsterdam
With the huge growth of the impact investment industry – doubling in a year to half a trillion dollars - there is a danger, with so many rushing into the class, that bad products get mixed with the good. As pension plans start to have a fiduciary duty to assess impact, how do they compare across companies, geographies and sectors?
We explore the systems of measurement out there, their similarities and their differences. Is it possible to group them in any way? Can we ever get to a single system of impact measurement. If we could, how do we get there?

Sanctions' silver lining: The resilience of Russia's world-beating stock market
15 October 2019 | Webcast
Russia, suddenly, seems reassuringly boring. The ruble is no longer whipsawed by oil. Corporate governance is improving, and reserves are approaching the magic 7% of GDP beyond which lies economic stimulus. There’s even a thaw in relations with Ukraine. With valuations among the cheapest in emerging markets, now is the time to take a closer look at Russia.
Understand how to approach Russia’s unloved stock market in our live webcast with East Capital’s Jacob Grapengiesser, in interview with the emerging markets author and journalist Gavin Serkin.

Mention frontier markets to the average investor, and listen for a sharp intake of breath and woe betide warnings of extreme risk.
