About Us

Africa Assets was founded in 2011 by Rachel Keeler and Andrea Bohnstedt, in recognition of the rapidly growing demand for reliable information on private equity and venture capital in sub-Saharan Africa. The africa-assets.com website provides news, analysis, commentary and data on Africa’s PE/VC industry. It also serves as a platform to facilitate communication and collaboration amongst industry players.

Rachel has wide-ranging experience in researching and writing on business in Africa. As the research analyst for sub-Saharan Africa at the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association (EMPEA), she acted as the data manager and one of two principle authors for “EMPEA Insight Special Edition: Private Equity in Sub-Saharan Africa” (November 2010). She has also worked as a business journalist, writing for publications including The Africa Report, Ratio Magazine, and the Financial Times. Write to her at: rachel.keeler@africa-assets.com

Andrea has an extensive background in political risk analysis and investment consulting in Africa. She worked as Africa analyst for Global Insight, one of the largest international country intelligence providers. Andrea has also written on business, economic and political issues for, amongst others, Dun and Bradstreet, African Business, Africa Investor, Afrika-Wirtschaft, Control Risks, and Oxford Analytica. She currently publishes Ratio Magazine, an online source for analysis on business and investment in East Africa. Write to her at: andrea.bohnstedt@africa-assets.com
