John Niepold, Sebastiaan Kwakkenbos and Nate Choge oversee SQM’s Frontier Africa Strategy. John has been investing in the region since 1993 when he helped launch and manage one of the first institutional investment products for Africa. Sebastiaan joined SQM just prior to the Africa strategy’s inception. Nate, who had previously worked with John, joined the team a year later. Collectively, our Africa team has more than 40 years of investment experience in the region. This strategy focuses primarily on the roughly 15 equity markets in Africa outside South Africa.
