The DealMakers AFRICA Annual Awards was launched as a standalone event in Nairobi in March 2019 sponsored by Ansarada and Brunswick. In addition to recognizing the top Financial and Legal Advisers for both regions, the top Deal of the Year and Private Equity Deal of the Year are awarded for West and East Africa.

A new award, sponsored by PSG Capital, recognizes the Top DealMaker of the Year (West Africa) for the year under review, whose deal activity and characteristics are noteworthy and who has made a significant contribution to the region or industry.

The primary aim of DealMakers AFRICA is to build close relationships with advisory firms, initially in East and West Africa but expanding to North and Southern Africa in due course.

We feel that the purpose of establishing such ties will ensure that DealMakers AFRICA develops into a relevant publication with a better understanding of the M&A space in these areas and also assist us in shaping bespoke league tables and awards that will fully reflect the type of work undertaken by the local advisory firms. 

The Managing Director of TSM Network, UK and Nigeria, Dominic Ajayi who is a strategic partner for the DealMakers Africa Awards noted that the top special of honour guests to expect at the event is not limited to the following: Gleason Publications (Pty) Ltd team, Mary Louise Greig and Vanessa Ann Aitken.
