Africa Matters Limited is a professional services company that helps organisations manage their risk and improve their performance in Africa. Founded in 1997 by our Chairman Baroness Lynda Chalker who served as the combined UK Minister for Africa and Overseas Development between 1989 – 1997. We work for a variety of companies across all sectors but our major clients are Oil & Gas Majors, Mining companies, FMCG companies, Agricultural investors, International Investment Banks and Private Equity Houses.
We also work directly for three African Governments assisting them with managing their Presidential investor round tables.
With 10 employees in London and a sister company in South Africa we offer solutions in the areas of market entry, strategic community engagement, key stakeholder mapping, engagement and verification, due diligence and political risk management.
Our focus is to give clients the information to make the right decisions and take the right actions wherever needed in Africa. Our approach is grounded in a perspective that comes from our deep experience working on a wide range of issues across the continent. Our work for clients is supported by a private database of key Government officials from Heads of State downwards and individuals throughout the African business community.
