Annual Investment Conference
CFA Society South Africa will host this year's annual investment conference on
the 26th of July at The Vineyard, Cape Town.
As a Society we are reaching towards better outcomes for investors, being cognisant that
the purpose of finance is to increase wealth and well-being for society at large. This year,
the theme of our local conference is "Let's Measure Up in Africa".
Against this backdrop the agenda and speakers for the conference are representative of
different disciplines and industry angles, and will analyse and evaluate lessons learnt in
the past, 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 which draws out the challenges and opportunities facing investment
professionals today. Two debaters argue for the motion, and two argue against. In line
with the theme of our conference this year -
"Let's Measure Up in Africa" -
we have invited four guest speakers to debate the 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
attendees to vote both before and after the debate, with the aim for both teams to
sway more of the audience to support their particular position.
We invite you to join us at this year's investment conference and look forward to your
