The Housing Finance Course for Sub-Saharan Africa is run in partnership between the University of Cape Town and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and is supported by the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa. It provides an in-depth understanding of the elements and viability of a housing finance system and how these elements need to work together systemically to provide a range of products such as mortgages, pension-backed finance, installment sale finance and housing micro-finance. In addition, the course explores how housing finance systems can be improved through the use of instruments such as state subsidies.
