Most recently, Standard & Poor downgraded SA even deeper into junk status. On the upside, as a result of the country's coronavirus response led by President Cyril Ramaphosa, S&P upgraded SA's outlook from negative to stable. But does that really provide a silver lining and give our country — and international investors — something positive to hang their hats on?

Peter Bruce, former editor-in-chief of Business Day and Financial Mail, speaks to the leaders of some of SA’s most prominent banking and financial services institutions about their expectations of life in a post-lockdown SA.

Bruce is joined by:

  • Cas Coovadia (CEO, Business Unity SA)
  • Basani Maluleke (CEO, African Bank)
  • Risto Ketola (group finance director, Momentum Metropolitan)

This timely Business Day Dialogue provides insights from those leading the charge towards economic recovery, and the realities we should expect as we move forward.
