The Investment Forum, in its 11th year of existence, is South Africa’s premier thought-leadership event for investment professionals. The 2021 event will be held virtually and has managed to secure some of the brightest minds in investment management from across the globe. These experts will share their insights into a wide array of subject matter, covering geopolitics, macro-economic predictions, fiscal stimulation and money supply, new thematic investment trends, vaccine implementation and the impact of developed and developing economies as well as specific views on the likely performance of various asset classes. Arguably, the world is on the precipice of “normalisation” and financial markets are already pricing in robust economic growth. However, there is still a plethora of risks at stake, and global recovery could be stymied by variances of COVID-19.

Financial advisers that register for this event will also get a free PDF copy of Futurist, Gerd Leonard’s eBook, - Technology vs Humanity. This book provides very interesting perspectives on the scale and speed of technological change but also reflects on human happiness at the heart of future decision making.
