As an Investor into African based projects and companies you will have the first ever Pan-African view of opportunities that assist the economic and social development of exciting frontier business opportunities. The majority of African markets are used to paying high-yield interest to the local Banks and Micro-Finance lenders within their jurisdiction, and therefore offer attractive opportunities for international and direct foreign investment to lower the cost of capital and increase the rate of return for African entrepreneurs and projects.
As the first united African global investment community, AfricanX has built the required relationships with local introducers, brokers, and professionals to supply the due diligence on the businesses and equities offered. Projects that primarily are only ever seen by Investment Banks focused on Africa are now liberated by the availability of direct investment by socially responsible sophisticated investors like yourself.
African owned or based businesses or projects are capable of attracting Direct Investment and Pan-African investment into their campaign through the licensed broker dealers and introducers who guide you as an investor on the disclosures, risks, disclaimers, and opportunities. Investors can self-direct their investment or ask for “advice” to registered professionals to whom they have opened an “account” with.
The transactions are “Private Placement” for the crowd funding system and “private reselling” for the investor to investor trading markets.
There are two markets of which you can make an application for:
The Equity Crowd Funding Market where private placements like an IPO are made into the company. Building up the required investment of seed and start-up capital.
The Equity Standard Market where shareholders who are sophisticated and qualified may resell their shares in private transactions with other investors on the system. The qualifying companies are private reporting companies within their jurisdiction with the applicable offering documents for general market trading.
