President Obiang is Africa’s longest-serving head of state. Approaching his fortieth year in power in 2019, we analyzed the medium term political risks associated with a transition of power to his son Teodorín.

In the runup to Angola’s 2018 bond issuances, we performed a macroeconomic analysis of the country, with particular reference to President Lourenço’s stated election aims. Using an extensive network of local contributors in the public and private sectors, we also undertook a deep-dive of national oil company Sonangol’s finances, to give investors a clearer picture of the risks associated with the Angolan market.
