Written by Peter Pedroncelli

Many African companies have achieved great success within the continent to the degree that it made sense to list on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) alongside their local Stock Exchange listing, in order to attract further investment in the UK.

Numerous African businesses are able to take advantage of dual listing on the their local stock exchanges and the LSE, which is what a number of established companies in Sub-Saharan Africa do.

These firms are able to find comparative advantage with access to two liquidity pools, with an African investor base that understands the African nature of the business, and a secondary investor base in London, that understands the company’s international aspirations.

We take a look at 10 companies from Sub-Saharan Africa which are listed on the LSE.
