UNDERSTANDING AFRICA

TURN A FOOTPRINT INTO A FOOTHOLD

Africa’s economic performance over the past decade has outstripped any other period. It is now the second fastest growing region in the world with a rapidly expanding consumer base that is highly attractive to
foreign investors. Middle market businesses have an advantage over larger organisations as they are more nimble, and often subject to fewer restrictions.

As business in Africa is developing, so is RSM’s representation across the region. We offer a full range of services that can help you take advantage of the myriad of investment opportunities in this vast, resource-rich land of opportunity.
