South Africa’s Public Investment Corp. may invest as much as 10 percent of assets outside South Africa to diversify its investment portfolio, Business Day reported, citing Chief Executive Officer Elias Masilela.

Investments will be made in private equity and development funding, including infrastructure and property in Egypt, Kenya and Nigeria, it said.
