June 06, 2020 - Puttru’s Thought Leaders Series brings to you the voices shaping Africa’s energy market.

Listen to Ope Onibokun share his experience on how to navigate the challenges of investing in infrastructure in Africa.

Ope is an Investment Specialist with a track record of raising  capital  for large scale infrastructure projects, mobilising about US$2 billion for projects on the Africa continent. His area of expertise covers ports, transportation, logistics, telecom and energy.

He believes that Africa currently presents a more attractive market, compared to anywhere else in the world. One of his reasons being that the continent is one of the few regions currently experiencing high yield, despite the downturn in other regions.

His top picks for sectors posed to attract the most capital are: ICT, logistics and the manufacturing sector, with tech-enabled companies easing the process.
