2022 CFA Society South Africa Annual Investment Conference

Investing Amidst Uncertainty


The only certainty these days is uncertainty. The issues impacting global markets are numerous, and the factors that investors need to take heed of are plenty: from slowing economic growth, declining asset prices, geopolitical tensions, rapidly shifting monetary policy, and the possibility of stagflation. Such a complex environment requires careful and prudent navigation, which is why we at CFA Society South Africa have chosen the theme "Investing Amidst Uncertainty" for our 2022 Annual Conference. Join us along with an exciting list of speakers who will unpack and dissect these topical issues.
