Now in its second year, the Absa Africa Financial Markets Index records the openness to foreign investment of countries across the continent. The index is a premier indicator of the attractiveness of Africa’s capital markets, for use by policy-makers, investors and asset managers around the world. Since its inception in 2017, the index has been the benchmark used by most countries to reflect on the state of their financial markets and what actions they need to take in order to attract foreign direct investment.
