Published

Jul

 
The STANLIB international investment conference – one of the biggest events on the investment industry calendar – will this year bring five international pundits to South Africa as part of an 11-strong panel of authoritative speakers and commentators. Dylan Evans,. Director Investment Marketing this week (end July) announced that the full line-up of speakers had confirmed their participation in the agenda-setting event. The conference opens in Cape Town on August 21 and moves to Durban and Johannesburg before the final conference session in Pretoria on August 25. Speakers are: David Sheperd, chartered financial analyst with Marvin & Palmer of Philadelphia (who gives the US regional market overview); Peter Holland, senior investment consultant, Fidelity Investments London (UK and Europe regional market overview); Adam Matthews, managing director, Far East Equities , Jardine Fleming, London (Japan regional market overview); Terry Mahony, executive director, Investment Manager Selection, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (who speaks on ‘China and India, the Pillars of Future Global Growth’); Roger Nightingale, global economic adviser, Millennium Global Investments, London (on ‘The Evolution of Economic Cycles’); Roger is a frequent contributor to CNBC. Kevin Lings, STANLIB’s chief economist, Allistair Sparks, veteran journalist and political analyst, and Chantell Illbury, strategist and scenario planner (on ‘Geopolitical Factors Influencing Global Economies in the Next Five Years’); Barrie Bramley, chief imagination officer at the TomorrowToday.biz Talent Development Project (on ‘Mind the Gap – Understanding the Different Generations’); Paul Hansen, director retail investment marketing at STANLIB (‘Constructing a Diversified Investment Portfolio’). Master of Ceremonies is columnist and radio presenter, David Bullard. Dylan Evans noted: “We’ve had enthusiastic response from investment advisers and other industry professionals for this, our third annual STANLIB international investment conference. “The conference mix of global and local perspectives has strong appeal at this juncture in view of recent market volatility, a changed interest rate environment, the performance of the rand, and concern about global sentiment toward emerging markets. “The focus on macro developments and future-spotting has great relevance for planners and investment strategists. The conference could not have come at a better time.” **** Big response to STANLIB investment conference **** STANLIB, the country’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: “It 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. “The reason for even greater interest this year is obvious – 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.” 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.
