Ludivine Wouters is co-founder and managing partner of Latitude Five where she is in charge of mining and mining services.
As a corporate development consultant, Ludivine works with companies and investors to define and realise their vision, turning ideas and potential into reality across a variety of African destinations. This can take many forms, whether structuring and conducting growth initiatives and transactions (M&A, JVs, restructuring), devising and implementing market entry and engagement strategies or driving permitting processes and title negotiations with Government to successful conclusion. With a decade of on-the-ground experience in Africa, Ludivine has an in-depth understanding of emerging and frontier markets and the opportunities and challenges they present to companies and investors in mining and natural resources.
Ludivine has experience in political risk insurance within a Lloyd’s insurance syndicate, and significant legal experience in corporate law, mergers and acquisitions and capital markets with leading international firms in Paris; she also worked for an emerging markets investment bank in London, focusing on metals and mining clients, particularly African juniors.
