Next week, Investec Asset Management shall have the pleasure of organizing the eighth edition of its global investment conference, Investec Global Insights 2015. The asset management company will gather 250 delegates from 23 countries worldwide in London, with the aim of providing its clients with the most complete and updated analysis for making their investment decisions.
After the last twelve months, during which the market has undergone some significant changes, the content of the conference is more relevant than ever. Attendees from the United States, Latin America, Europe, UK, Middle East, Africa, and Asia will have the opportunity to attend several ‘Meet the Portfolio Manager’ sessions and interact with peers from major fund buyers from all around the world.
This year, some of the featured presentations will focus on the following topics:
- Is it still worth investing in emerging markets?
- Are developed markets looking stretched?
- When will rates rise and what will be the impact?
- How do you find sustainable sources of income?
Outside the purely financial field, the conference will feature the starring presentation of Francois Pienaar, captain of the South Africa National Rugby Union team from 1993 to 1996. He will share his experiences, which led the team to win the Rugby World Cup in 1995. In Invictus, the film based on this feat directed by Clint Eastwood, Pienaar is played by Matt Damon.
Richard Garland, Investec’s Managing Director, will act as conductor of the event for the duration of the conference.
