2023 Deloitte Africa Private Equity Confidence Survey (PECS)

The Deloitte Africa Private Equity Confidence Survey (PECS) provides insights into how private equity (PE) practitioners view the African PE landscape, specifically their future expectations over the next 12 months, as well as regional macroeconomic perspectives across East, North, Southern, and West Africa.

In this edition we also provide expert insights about the correlation between environmental, social and governance (ESG) scores and the value of a company, bridging value gaps in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions, and understanding distressed assets and restructuring.

Key highlights of the report

  • Economic climate

Despite tougher conditions in many regional economies the continent remains resilient.

  • Investment landscape

Investments are expected to increase over the next 12 months, despite the uncertain economic environment.

  • Fundraising environment

Fundraising timelines are mostly expected to increase, given the expected increase in due diligence requirements for funders.

  • Sector focus

The Agriculture/Agribusiness, Food & Beverages and Financial Services sectors are expected to be key investment sectors.
