CISI Founders Series Event : The new Silk Route

America Square Conference Centre

This event requires registration:

Silk Invest was founded in the midst of the developed market`s credit crisis in 2008 to provide institutional investors with access to investment opportunities across Africa, the Middle East and Frontier Asia. These frontier markets are undergoing a period of rapid industrialization and are largely unaffected by the debt overhang in Europe and the US. Silk Invest has six funds that focus on the opportunities presented through economic convergence in what us being termed the new Silk Route. This is driven by people and institutions covering half of the world’s future population areas. It believes the ‘consumer’ story in this region is even more compelling that the more widely recognized commodity story. Daniel Broby was lucky to be one of the first members of the CISI when it was formed from the London Stock Exchange 20 years ago and is also now a Visiting Professor at Strathclyde University Department of Accounting and Finance. Daniel Broby aims to provide an overview of what he believes is Silk Invest's unique perspective on consumer-related opportunities across public equity, fixed income and private equity.
