Chief Executive Officer and Founder
In 2000, Cyrille Nkontchou founded Johannesburg-based LiquidAfrica, an online trading site that allows global investors to buy and sell stocks across Africa. In recent years, due to the small pool of investors, the company has changed focus from individual investors to institutions and from trading to information, including news, corporate filings, country profiles, brokerage research and other business intelligence. Previously, Nkontchou worked as an analyst at Merrill Lynch in London. He holds an MBA from Harvard.
