The Uxolo event was great. The presentations were kind of a lighbulb moment for me. Looking forward to the next one.

Africa 2023: Development, Infrastructure, Energy & Natural Resources Finance

Oct 24 - Oct 25, 2023
Cape Town, South Africa

Our three brands joined forces to champion Africa! With aspects from Uxolo's development finance, TXF's export & commodity finance, and Proximo's project finance, this in-person spectacular had something for everyone and maximized networking at every possible turn.

Exile Group is the parent company of TXF, Proximo & Uxolo. Given the synergies in the markets the three brands serve, Exile will continue to co-locate several of its physical events. Attendees optimise their trip, meeting more prospective business partners, diversifying their portfolio and learning about a broader range of industry trends.

Delegates found this an unmatched opportunity to end the year on a high and start 2024 with new connections and crucial business intelligence insights to get ahead of the competition. Without anything quite like it in the market right now, this unique event brought the best of all things export, project, commodities & development finance.

While each of the asset classes converged, there was a sharp focus on each department dedicating time to delve into the top challenges and themes. We covered all of the latest trends in the industry without a stone unturned. Here are some of the key themes:

 The role of local African institutions in successful projects
 Breathing life into traditional hard infrastructure and PPPs
 Debt sustainability and creditworthiness of African countries
 How DFIs collaborate with ECAs
 Impact of Ukraine conflict on food security
 Mining for electric vehicles and battery storage and the ensuing ESG challenges
 South African Renewables Project Finance
