Current environment

The long global bull market from 2009 onwards reached its swan song in 2020 precipitated by the economic shock caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Many African markets had already experienced the turn in the macro-economic cycle in the previous years. Many previously healthy and successful businesses have found themselves in a state of stress. Many businesses are experiencing liquidity risks given, for example, increasing debtor days or refinancing challenges; and in many cases sovereign credit risks create an additional overhang.
