Insparo fund targets Africa and Middle East investment opportunities


Not investing in Africa and the Middle East now is like ignoring emerging markets in the 1990s, southeast Asia in the 1970s and Japan in the 1950s, according to Mohammed Hanif, fund manager for the Insparo Africa and Middle East Fund and chief investment officer for Insparo Asset Management.

Launched in June 2008 the fund invests in Africa and the Middle East using a multi-strategy approach. This, according to Jamie Allsopp, fund manager, makes the fund more relevant to the region.
