Testimonials

I find AGF’s content to be well-written, interesting and highly informative. AGF is able to attract leading figures in the African fund market for exclusive insights and opinion articles that are difficult to find elsewhere.


Augentius

Joe Greenwell
Business Development Director - Augentius

Finding the news behind the news has always been the challenge, but Anna and her team always seem to pull it off. The AGF website, e-newsletter and monthly magazine are read by the whole Phatisa team; well-written, African private equity news not found elsewhere. We are proud to be affiliated with such a young, ambitious and driven media team and wish them only the best.

Phatisa

Stuart Bradley
Joint Managing Partner - Phatisa

We find AGF a very useful publication, especially covering, as it does, all asset classes in Africa (as, uniquely, does Investec Asset Management). The public funds data and macro stats are very useful, while the articles and interviews are insightful and often cover (in relative terms) neglected markets and asset classes.

Investec Asset Management

Nick Tims
Managing Director

I have found the AGF monthly magazine very informative and always containing some interesting research on the Private Equity industry not found elsewhere.
