NASP and USAID: An Investment Partnership that Mobilizes Institutional Investment for African Infrastructure
USAID’s Office of Private Capital and Microenterprise (PCM) and the Africa Private Capital Group of the Southern Africa Mission have partnered with the National Association of Securities Professionals (NASP), a U.S.- based membership organization supporting women and minorities working in the securities and investment industry. Most of its 500+ members manage large pension funds or advise institutional investors in the U.S. USAID and NASP will convene a first of its kind U.S. and Africa Institutional Investor conference in sub-Saharan Africa in 2017 to facilitate relationships that build the capacity of local investors and expose U.S. financiers to investment opportunities. The partnership will bring U.S. financial professionals to sub-Saharan Africa to help structure and advise on transactions and financial vehicles that support infrastructure development.
