The African continent is one of the world’s key emerging markets. With accelerated economic growth across a number of countries and sectors, a population heavily skewed towards youth with increasing access to education, skills and entrepreneurial opportunities, high returns on investment, and progress in the areas of political reform, macroeconomic stability and social development, it is an attractive region for international investment.

We are proud to announce that Asafo & Co. and Lawtons Africa have joined forces to create Asafo & Lawtons. The Asafo & Co. Johannesburg office is trading as “Asafo & Lawtons”, and is supporting Asafo & Co. through Asafo & Lawtons. The Lawtons Inc Johannesburg office continues to operate under the name Lawtons Africa and will continue operating in South Africa to support clients on engagements in the domestic market.
