Guide to Financial Regulation in Africa

11 October 2019

Clifford Chance is proud to launch the Guide to Financial Regulation in Africa. This Guide provides an overview of financial regulations applicable at the end of 2019 in the twenty largest African jurisdictions by GDP and brings together the collective knowledge and experience of Clifford Chance and its law firm relationships across the African continent.

African jurisdictions vary in their financial regulatory legislation and treatment of financial services activity, but the region’s drive for improved regulatory systems and the establishment of more effective regulatory frameworks has been on the rise in the past two decades. At the same time, we see increased focus on investing capital into and financing activity for Africa.

In our outlook for the future of global financial regulation, it is our hope that this Guide will assist you in understanding the local laws and regulations that apply in the African jurisdictions covered.
