Abstract
This study examines the current state of private equity in North Africa, particularly in the countries of Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. It has been developed from two perspectives: as a document research task and from the point of view of an operational fund manager in the region. The aim of the study is to share with the key stakeholders of this industry a few recommendations and challenges for private equity and to point out the great opportunities this industry can offer the region. Private equity is a key catalyst for growth in terms of job creation, increasing tax revenues, improving SME governance and many other very positive outcomes, all of which could create significant benefits for the region.
