Information Management Network is proud to bring their global portfolio of unparalleled investment management conferences back to Cape Town, South Africa. Taking place in September of 2011, the Second Annual African Cup of Investment Management conference will bring together the leading players in the African institutional and retail investment communities.
The South African pension market has had exponential growth over the last ten years, having experienced a 28% growth rate of pension assets in 2010.* The growing level of investors looking for greater transparency, liquidity, diversification, flexibility and cost effectiveness while maximizing returns have created a growth in non-traditional investments including exchange-traded funds, which are forecasted to hit 2 trillion in global assets by early 2012. The constant development of the industry has created increasingly competitive markets and with new providers and products constantly surfacing it is important for the industry to come together to discuss risk management, portfolio construction, alternative investment opportunities, hedging strategies and the future of the investment management industry!
Developed with the assistance of our in-country partners, the conference is not to be missed! Keep checking the website for regular updates as we build out this exciting event. We look forward to seeing you in September!
