"EuroMena’s participation in the Conference comes on the heels of the second closing of its EuroMena III Fund in June 2016, for a total consideration of $150 million, and presents a unique opportunity to demonstrate the hedging opportunity that Africa and the Levant provide for foreign investors in terms of portfolio diversification”.
