A Message from
Aymeric Saha
CEO - MiDA Advisors

As we wrap up the first quarter of the year and head into the second, we at MiDA Advisors are filled with renewed focus and excitement for the rest of 2021 and into 2022. Vaccines are making themselves more available across the globe, elevating our hope for a return to normalcy. While lingering distortions and market vulnerabilities accentuated by the pandemic remain, robust economic growth is expected to return in emerging markets by 2022.

A significant increase in infrastructure spending in the U.S. and globally is expected to further boost commodity prices, creating favorable conditions for increased trade and investments with frontier markets. In Sub-Saharan Africa, a relatively slower spread of the virus, lower COVID-19-related mortality, faster recovery in commodity prices, and a rebound in private consumption and investments as confidence strengthens will drive a robust recovery in 2022 with real GDP growth estimated between 3.5% to 4%, with several economies growing above 6%. This expected recovery will open-up new opportunities for U.S. institutional investors seeking enhanced return and diversification benefits in new markets and products.

MiDA Advisors, in collaboration with NASP, is looking forward to continuing to serve as a trusted source of knowledge and market insight to our Advisory Council members and working with our development partners to mobilize investments into Africa and other emerging markets. 

Best regards,
Aymeric Saha
