About event

Be recognised and honoured in the African Fund Services space by participating in the 2024 AGF Africa Service Providers Awards. The Awards were created to honour and generate both industry and public recognition of the outstanding efforts and accomplishments of Fund Service Providers covering Africa.

The AGF Service Providers Awards serve as a prestigious symbol of excellence, being the only international awards in African Fund Services.

This year we partnered with MNCapital Group and the AGF Service Providers Awards 2024 will be held during the 8th Africa Investment Funds and Asset Management (AIFAM) Forum, scheduled from 6th to 8th November 2024 in Kigali, Rwanda (venue TBC).

The AIFAM Forum and AGF Service Providers Awards aim to foster long-term strategic collaborations with active stakeholders dedicated to finding innovative and sustainable solutions to the key challenges faced by African institutional investors.

The awards ceremony offers a unique platform to celebrate achievements and foster connections within the investment community.

The AGF Service Provides Awards will take place on the evening of Thursday, November 7th, 2024 (venue TBC).

Submissions Deadline: September 6th 2024.

Please note that the judging period is from July 2023 to June 2024.

We are also inviting companies to participate in two special editions of Africa Global Funds magazine: October issue focused on African pension funds to be distributed during the AIFAM Forum in Rwanda; and the Awards issue published in November (posted on our website and distributed free of charge to our database). Both issues will feature interviews, analysis, and/or opinion commentary with participating companies.
