Next shares, Zenova IPO and an African growth story with Alan Green
This week's UK Investor Magazine Podcast with Alan Green covers Next shares (LON:NXT), the Zenova Group (LON:ZED) IPO and an under appreciated African growth story in AirTel Africa (LON:AAF).The FTSE 100 has suffered bouts of volatility over the last week as COVID cases rise globally and concerns about inflation persist. We question whether we could see more meaningful downside in markets in the third quarter and look at the potential buying opportunities in such a circumstance.Next shares gave a boost to the FTSE 100 following a strong trading update that demonstrated the successful shift to online sales during the pandemic. With such bumper sales figures, it does raise the possibility it is simply a result of pent up demand that diminishes through the rest of 2021.We discuss Zenova Group - which popped higher on its IPO - and what the future holds for the innovative fire protection company. Finally there is attention paid to a very fairly priced African growth company that may have flown under the radar.

The UK Investor Magazine Podcast is joined by Cormac Leech, founder of Litigation Funding platform AxiaFunder.AxiaFunder is the only investment platform available to UK investors to access the new asset class of Litigation Funding.

One of the standout attractions of litigation funding is the absence of correlation with the broad economic environment.Litigation, and the need to pursue litigation, is not largely impacted by economic growth in the same way traditional assets such as equities and bonds are.Find more information on the AxiaFunder website:https://www.axiafunder.com/Investing in offers promoted by AxiaFunder involves risks.
