African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM), one of the largest and oldest general partners on the African continent, has selected Market Lens to boost their private markets strategy and address their LP investor intelligence needs.
“As we continue to grow, we are working to attract more institutional capital from US-based and international LPs. Market Lens will be instrumental in this process because it will allow us to focus in on investors seeking exposure to African markets,” said Paul Frankish, Head of Strategic Initiatives for AIIM.
“AIIM saw the value that Market Lens could bring to their fundraising process and we believe it will help cement their status as the leading private markets infrastructure manager in Africa,” added Global Head of GP Sales, David Kanto.
