STANLIB, the countryâ€™s largest unit trust company, announced today (Friday. July 21) that it will again be staging its international investment conference, with a bumper attendance expected in view of recent market volatility.
Dylan Evans, Director Investment Marketing said: â€œIt will be our third annual conference and interest is already mounting. We expect up to 800 investment advisers and industry professionals to attend the opening sessions in Cape Town. Over 1500 delegates are anticipated when the event comes to Johannesburg four days later.
â€œThe reason for even greater interest this year is obvious â€“ turbulence in the market, interest rate increases and the sudden weakness in the rand after four years of outstanding strength. Our international guest speakers will be expected to provide an insight into what is moving markets and what South African investors can expect in the coming months.â€
The conference opens in Cape Town on Monday, August 21. It then moves to Durban, Johannesburg and Pretoria.
The authoritative panel of speakers will include senior executives from international investment industry players such as Fidelity Investments and Investment Manager Selection.
