LJ Africa Advisors is a joint venture between Roberta Annan Consulting and LJ Partnership, a privately held multi family office. Together they will bring financial and investment expertise to the growing African market.
Roberta Annan, who spearheaded the venture, has forged valuable relationships in both the private and governmental sector over the years, which are critical to doing business in Africa.
The African economy is growing and with it are the number of wealthy individuals. This provides a great opportunity to combine philanthropy with business, and it is this, that LJ Africa Advisors is responding to.
There are also a wide range of economic changes happening in Africa which encourage economic investment, as well as areas such as mining, that represent underexploited investment opportunities.
