on investing in Sub Saharan Africa
“This interesting article in today's FT spotlights the long term growth potential of sub-Saharan Africa. is there any way we can invest in this trend?”

Eoin Treacy's view Thank you for this article which may be of interest to other subscribers. Sub Saharan Africa is receiving a great deal of attention as governance improves and a middle class evolves. Markets are still relatively illiquid and prone to volatility but there are an increasing number of vehicles offering exposure to these markets. (Also see Comment of the Day on October 10th).

Among those posted in the Chart Library two of the most accessible for retail investors are the UK listed Africa Opportunities Fund and the US listed Market Vectors Africa ETF.
