Karine Loehman

Managing Director, Africa

“Through its nearly two decades of coverage in Africa, OBG has allowed investors to access knowledge on economies that are brimming with potential, but all too often underrated. Pursuing that goal has been extremely fulfilling, and we have brought African investment opportunities into the economic research spotlight. Many new prospects are emerging at a time when Africa is garnering more attention. It is surely the most exciting part the job, to feel we are opening new frontiers.“
