Registration has opened for SA’s premier event for investment managers, financial advisers, multi-managers, discretionary fund managers and wealth managers and places at these typically fully booked conferences are filling up fast.

The Investment Forum, now in its ninth year, is a must for top advisers and managers who want the keep abreast of the latest industry developments.

This year’s event is being overseen by someone who is no stranger to the investment industry, Kevin Hinton, the director of Collaborative Exchange. Tiso Money and its carrier titles Business Times, Business Day and Financial Mail, are the media partner for this year’s event, which will be held on the following dates:

  • Century City Convention Centre, Cape Town – April 9 to 10 2019
  • Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton – April 11 to 12 2019

The past five years have been particularly trying for financial markets as global trade wars, geopolitics, deteriorating fiscal and monetary policy and benign economic growth in SA weighed heavily on market sentiment and company earnings prospects.

Says Hinton: "This has put strain on opportunities to provide investors with real capital and income growth, and confidence in the financial market system is being tested

"History has shown that this is generally the time when investors disinvest, but markets have a habit of rebounding quickly and positive market returns can be concentrated in a few days' trade.

"To address this, The Investment Forum has invited 21 of SA’s leading domestic and international investment managers to provide insights into the current and future state of financial markets."
