RS Capital Middle East Ltd, a subsidiary of Ridge Solutions International Holdings Ltd, will offer broad-based financial services (including management, brokerage and consultancy) to Middle East investors seeking investment opportunities in Angola.
Ridge Solutions Executive President Jose F. Ramos said:
“The Middle East remains a strong market for international investment and with Angola’s huge potential for growth linked to its national reconstruction programme and an abundance of natural resources, it offers a wide range of high yield options well-suited to this region. Our service model is based on the implementation of international best business practices, which include a commitment to quality, innovation and ethics.”
Angola is the seventh largest country in Africa, with 1,600km of Atlantic coastline, and sub-Saharan Africa’s third largest economy. The country, rich in natural resources, is sub-Saharan Africa’s second largest petroleum producer, the world’s fourth largest diamond producer, and possesses rich mineral deposits (including iron, copper, zinc, tungsten and gold) – finally, 25% of Africa´s freshwater resources originate in Angola.
Real GDP for Angola is forecast to recover in 2010, growing by 6.4%, in line with rising oil production (The Economist Intelligence Unit report July 2009); national reconstruction (infrastructure spending) is expected to reach $2.3bn in 2010 and $4.59bn by 2012 (“The Angolan Economy: Recent Evolution and Perspectives,” Min. Fin. 2007).
