Insights and perspectives on frontier markets

We are specialist investment managers focused on Africa and the Middle East.

We strongly believe that ‘the world is turning upside down’ from a economic perspective. Europe is mature. Asia is reclaiming its dominance. Africa and the Middle East are reopening to the global investor. The Silk route has been reestablished - hence the name of our company.

Silk Invest was established to harness this grand long term investment opportunity.
