Member Value Proposition

The Africa Sustainable Investment Forum [AfricaSIF.org] is designed to offer members a network of peers, a knowledgebase of research & analysis including a bi-annual survey of assets in Africa, and a pan-African advocate for sustainable investment in countries where we have a critical mass of members. Most AfricaSIF.org work will be member-led and provide opportunities for member involvement and leadership.
Institutions:
  • Building the market size: by building the market for sustainable investment in Africa, we increase the size of the pie for all. As the appetite and activity for sustainable investment increases, all players along the investment value chain benefit.
  • Growing the information base: AfricaSIF as a not-for-profit entity seeks to increase the available information to members by developing new materials - e.g. the bi-annual Marketplace & Trends Report - as well as collating available information from companies, think tanks, governments and NGOs that inform sustainable investment.
  • Making connections and opening doors: AfricaSIF.org is firstly a network to increase the focus of conversations around investment in African and how that integrates ESG factors. AfricaSIF.org enables organizations and companies to expand their networks and open doors to conversations across private, public and philanthropy sectors providing great value for money.
  • Improving the profile: AfricaSIF.org connections across borders and asset classes therefore we enable institutions to increase their profile as players in sustainable investment in frontier and emerging markets, especially Africa.

Individuals:

In addition to the reasons applying to institutions, for individuals we offer:

  • Peers in sustainable investment: AfricaSIF.org offers the opportunity across private, public and philanthropy sectors to debate and discuss with practitioners what happens in real life making investment in Africa happen.
  • Shared learnings: By nature our network offers the opportunity for learnings to be shared formally through reports, articles and case studies between individuals seeking to improve their work and continue to push at the cutting edge of investment in Africa and sustainable development. The fact that AfricaSIF.org connects locally, regionally and internationally, means individuals have opportunities to share globally.
  • Opening doors: becoming active as an individual presents the opportunity for individuals to make a positive impression with their talent in sustainable investment in Africa. Individuals have the opportunity to impress their colleagues and open doors for themselves in their professional development.
  • Giving back: most investment practitioners have benefited from education through academics and experience. As experienced and educated individuals, AfricaSIF.org as a network presents the opportunity for individuals inside and outside Africa to given back some of their talent and skills to move forward other individuals who have not had the privilege of similar opportunities.
