Korea Investment Roadshow

Absa Corporate and Investment Banking is a proudly Pan-African bank with an expansive history in the investment management field. We are proud to share our knowledge through collaborative cross-continent dialogue.

While in South Korea, we were able to create dialogues that adequately outlined the endless growth opportunities waiting to be discovered in South Africa.

Through this collaboration we aim to show South Africa’s growth capabilities whilst also building confidence and affinity towards funding on the continent.
