Côte d’Ivoire 2019 Capital Markets

After four years of high gains following the end of the political instability in Côte d’Ivoire, the Bourse Régionale des Valeurs Mobilières – headquar¬tered in the Ivorian commercial capital Abidjan – is experiencing challenges marked by a significant drop in indexes, reaching a six-year low in 2018. Increased competition for telecoms companies in Senegal and Burkina Faso, a crisis in the Ivorian banking sector and fears of political unrest do not seem to indicate a short-term recovery in prices. However, bright economic prospects for the UEMOA region and increasingly attractive price-to-earnings ratios present medium-term opportunities for investors. As the bourse’s visibility is increasing and more companies list, interest for the equity market will continue to grow. This chapter contains interviews with Felix Edoh Kossi Aménounvé, CEO, La Bourse; and Niamkey Isidore Tanoé, CEO, Atlantique Finance.
