Profica is proud to be once again contributing to the annual West Africa Property Investment Summit (WAPI) as a speaker and industry sponsor. Chris Titmas, Profica Managing Director of the West Africa Region, will be contributing to a roundtable discussion on day 1 at 3pm.
WAPI is the region’s premier property gathering and is well known for a thoughtful curation and presentation of highly relevant content. This year’s theme is ‘Re-calibrating supply & demand for sustainable growth’. Chris Titmas will be sharing his insights during a roundtable discussion entitled ‘The supply drivers and construction cost management’. The discussion will focus on how developers can adapt to – and meet –changing market demands for the delivery of affordable, accessible and lucrative real estate products. Chris, who has 30 years’ industry experience is well-placed to share his views, having worked on numerous projects across the full spectrum of sectors from iconic high-end hotel projects to mixed-use and industrial developments, amongst others.
Chris says, “As having operating in the West African region since 2011, Profica is very in-tune with anticipating market needs and identifying the challenges that might be associated in meeting those needs. The region’s economic outlook continues to improve with average GDP growth projected to rise to 3.9 % in 2019. Developed countries’ positive economic prospects should boost West African growth in the short to medium term, and as foreign investors are now seeing new opportunities in the region beyond traditional destinations such as Nigeria, the property development sector should position itself to take advantage of growth opportunities.”
