Symposium 2022

The 13th annual HedgeNews Africa Symposium is scheduled for March 9, 2022 in Cape Town, and we are excited to be returning to in-person programming and networking.

The event will be hosted in conjunction with leading industry players, and will adhere to strict Covid protocols, in line with prevailing venue and government restrictions.

We are excited to confirm that Lee Robinson of Altana Wealth and Kevin Gundle of Aurum Funds will both be in keynote conversation at the event, providing insights across a range of important topics, from prevailing market opportunities (from crypto to climate) and where the hedge fund industry is positioned in the global asset management arena.

In addition, David Berman from Durban Capital, will be returning as a keynote speaker. Berman focuses primarily on the US consumer, and many of our audience will recall his great calls a few years ago to buy Amazon and Apple.

As always, the Symposium agenda will feature topical keynote sessions and interactive panel discussions, and we will be working with top fund managers, investors and service providers to craft an agenda that educates, interrogates and inspires.

The agenda will be accredited with CPD points for attendees. The event will retain a hybrid element, and programming will be made available for online viewing, as in 2021.

In a year of ongoing change for global economies, prominent speakers and panellists will focus on key issues affecting alternative asset managers and their investors.

Industry players can look forward to day of important debate and discussion, as well as a premium networking opportunity.

Symposium topics will include:

  • The macro picture: implications for managers and investors
  • Playing the Pan Africa story
  • Different hedge fund strategies and what they offer
  • Risk and reward in South African equities
  • Risk and reward in South African fixed income
  • How private debt is bringing change
  • From crypto to carbon and commodities – accessing new ideas
