CFA Society South Africa 2024 Annual Investment Conference

This year close to half the world’s adult population will vote in national elections around the world; the choices they make will have an indelible impact on the economic outlook and consequently, on capital markets. The increasingly visible hand of government is playing a greater role in fiscal policy, industrial policy and perhaps even monetary policy. The CFA Society South Africa 2024 annual investment conference will explore these and other topics impacting investor decisions this year under our flagship theme of “2024: Investors at the Polls”
