Fixed Income

Silk Emerging Africa Bond Fund

An Africa fixed income strategy built on our pioneering expertise in African fixed income markets.

The strategy focuses on investing in fixed-income instruments across the African markets. These encompass bonds that effectively deviate from traditional benchmarks, including those from Emerging and Frontier markets issued by sovereign issuers. Our approach involves identifying and seizing opportunities in both hard (USD) and local currency bonds.


Much like the emergence of debt in emerging markets during the 1990s, Africa’s fixed-income markets are currently opening up to international investors. Over the past decade, the Africa fixed-income investment universe has experienced significant growth dynamics. Investors are increasingly drawn to this market due to a combination of relatively high yields, low correlation with major markets, and improving liquidity.


Given the persistent uncertainty in global financial markets, we firmly believe that investing in the African bond market will provide clients with an unconventional yet rewarding opportunity.
Our strategy is available to investors worldwide, offering various vehicles for this approach, including separately managed accounts.
