Building Bridges between Africa and Europe
Africa is the continent of tomorrow, the last cluster of regions to offer investors long-term favourable business prospects.
We are firmly anchored in both Africa and Europe. That is why we see it as our primary task to build as many economic bridges as possible between the two continents.
We combine excellent knowledge of local conditions in Africa with a global perspective. Our aim is to offer financial advisory at the highest level – in the interests of African entrepreneurs and investors in Africa. In this way we want to contribute to fair and sustainable relations between the African continent and Europe. Our aim is to build bridges between Africa and Europe.
Three trends are driving development in Africa:
- a strong demographic growth;
- a rising middle class;
- a rapid urbanisation.
These three trends will determine growth in Africa for the coming years. They can open up many new opportunities for the African continent – or they can put the social and regional cohesion in Africa to the test. We want to help ensure that the continent masters these challenges and that the African economy develops its full potential. After all, we are convinced that the key to solving Europe’s structural problems lies in Africa.
From Cape Town to the North Cape
Africa, the Mediterranean rim and Europe should build an integrated economic zone. We adhere to the analysis of Jean-Louis Guigou, founder and president of the French think-tank IPEMED. According to him, the Mediterranean rim and Europe will have to build a unified economic space. Therefore, Europe should Africa fully integrate in the value creation chain of its manufacturing sector.
The future of Africa is not being a sales market for European companies. The challenge will be to industrialize Africa, to create jobs for a growing and young population, and to integrate the continent into the European economy. Africa Partners aspires to contribute to this South-North integration, one single market from Cape Town to the North Cape.

We strive to provide our clients with the best solutions. Therefore, we identify attractive investment opportunities and locations in Africa, set up the appropriate investment vehicle and manage the investments. Our partners will never be alone.
Through cooperation with African corporates and entrepreneurs we structure the ideal opportunities investors are looking for. In this way, we likewise support African companies in their growth strategy and business development. Our aim is to build bridges between Africa and Europe.
