Let’s Measure Up in Africa. That’s the theme of the CFA Society South Africa’s Annual Investment Conference that takes place on July 26 2018 at The Vineyard in Cape Town.

The theme is underpinned by society’s move towards reaching better outcomes for investors, and being cognisant that the purpose of finance is to increase wealth and well-being for all.

Against this backdrop, the conference speakers represent different disciplines and industry angles. They will analyse and evaluate lessons learnt, equip delegates to deal better with current demands, and provide a vision of what should be done differently in future.

The introduction of a classic debate to this year's agenda aims to facilitate a robust but friendly deliberation – drawing out the challenges and opportunities facing investment professionals today.

Two debaters argue for the motion and two against. In line with this year’s conference theme, the CFA Society South Africa has invited four guest speakers to debate this motion: “This house believes that Africa will always remain dependent on foreign investment to achieve its full economic potential.”

Audience participation is encouraged by posing questions to the debaters and inviting guests to vote before and after the debate, to challenge teams to sway the audience to support their particular position.
