Pension Funds and Private Equity in Nigeria Study

Co-authored by AVCA and PenOp

This report exemplifies our commitment to providing topical, independent, and thoughtful research to the industry. Our hope is that this report serves as a practical exposé for industry professionals on the factors driving Nigerian pension funds’ views of investing in private equity.

Key findings:

  • ₦35.48 billion (over US$92 million) committed to private equity funds by the Nigerian pension industry

  • 75% of the Pension Fund Managers that participated in the survey plan to accelerate or maintain their current pace of capital commitments to African PE

  • Infrastructure, Healthcare and Agribusiness were identified by the largest proportions of Pension Fund Managers as attractive sectors for PE investment in Africa

We look forward to hearing your thoughts
