Over the years Africa has become associated with impact investing, which is essentially about financially superior returns, and quantifiable social and environmental benefits. Sub-Saharan Africa alone has around 900m consumers. A lot of African countries have experienced rapid, sustained growth in GDP per capita over the last 10-15 years.
