HEAR THE LIONS ROAR

The world's last great unexplored market? Africa is on the very brink of stepping into the investment spotlight. With seven of the world's 10 fastest growing economies, vast natural resources, and an increasingly affluent population, it's a continent on the rise, where the lions are roaring.

Launched in 2010, our longest established fund gives you access to the dynamism and virtually unlimited growth potential of the entire continent, with fund manager Roberto Lampl drawing upon his long experience to pick winners from the Cape to Cairo. As Africa's rise gathers pace, this may be an opportunity that's simply too big to ignore . . .
