Capital Markets



The past few years have seen unprecedented stress in global capital markets. The markets are going through a time of volatility, financing uncertainty, and rapidly evolving business models. On the regional front the markets are characterised by low capitalisation and liquidity, but the region is leveraging from the experience of West Africa especially in moving towards integration and harmonization of the regional Capital Markets. Whether this will be successfully achieved both at a legal and operational level remains to be seen.
