Sectors

From its inception, Latitude Five has consistently focused on specific sectors corresponding to the areas of expertise of its founding partners, each having more than fifteen years of European and African professional experience in Real Estate & Hospitality, Infrastructure or Mining & Mining Services.

These sectors are of particular importance to investors and businesses as key drivers of growth across West Africa. Urbanisation, the rise of a middle class and substantial capital inflows are only some of the elements confirming that West Africa needs world-class expertise in those sectors, combined with in-depth local knowledge. Latitude Five offers these, as well as independent and tailored advice and support to its clients, with a strong focus on achieving their strategic objectives and delivering results.

By focusing on these sectors, Latitude Five has built a strong network of contacts among operators, investors and service providers specific to each of them. Also, in an environment where the State plays an important role in encouraging or even triggering private investment, Latitude Five is fully cognisant of the institutional and regulatory framework specific to each sector, and enjoys strong relationships with decision and influence-makers at all levels within the relevant administration and State agencies.
