Comments on: Certain danger: Extreme investing in Africa http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/2012/07/12/certain-danger-extreme-investing-in-africa/ Insights behind the investment headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:43:49 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Alistair Smout http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/2012/07/12/certain-danger-extreme-investing-in-africa/comment-page-1/#comment-17947 Fri, 13 Jul 2012 10:10:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/?p=6910#comment-17947 while clearly investment in places such as the DRC is not for the faint of heart, I don’t mean to paint the whole of Africa with the same brush. Consider Rwanda, for example, which has posted double digit growth over the last decade, or Botswana, whose growth is as impressive as its record of uninterrupted democracy since 1965. no part of the world is untouched by the current slowdown, but still it is emerging and frontier markets which are proving the most resilient when it comes to staying out of recession.

Considering that countries like Brazil and China have economies that are falters, I’ve been extremely cautious with my non US investments.
