  Conference Details:
Amidst the global economic crisis coupled with a frenzy to find natural and renewable resources, conducting business in Africa provides unique challenges and boundless opportunities. And as we move forward, the ever-quickening pace of globalization compels investors and managers to continuously look beyond their own borders for innovative solutions to increasingly complex investment decisions. Conducting business in Africa requires a specialized expertise different from other locations and markets as transactions often involve parties in multiple countries, municipalities and sectors that often have diverse, and sometimes conflicting, financial, social, legal, political and regulatory requirements and interests.

As the historically preferred point of entry into the rest of the continent's markets, South Africa is an optimal place to meet potential business partners that can help facilitate longevity and success.

The South Africa Investment Forum 2013 will address the most prevalent concerns, trends, opportunities and challenges facing fund managers and investors alike – domestically, internationally and throughout the African continent.
