Event: South Africa Masterclass III

South Africa Masterclass III

Thursday 18th May 2017
Belmond Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa

The third Global Investor South Africa Masterclass brings together all the participants in the securities lending chain. A key theme will be how the business can be made more efficient and reduce costs. Alternative routes to market will be discussed such as CCPs and peer-to-peer lending as well as measures to reducing pressure on prime broker balance sheets. Hedge funds have the opportunity to discuss prime services with PBs and hear from agent lenders and beneficial owners. Beneficial owners are also, of course, investors in many asset classes – including hedge funds. The key focus for the day is education both of the buyside and by ensuring we have panellists from the London market it allows us the chance to help educate regional industry practitioners.

The history of the Masterclass was built around 15 years ago with the aim to educate investors in the FX world. We then developed the business into emerging and frontier markets globally in the securities finance and lending space. Currently the model is built around bring industry practitioners local and internationally together in front of local asset managers, pension funds and hedge funds to inform and educate about the practicalities and opportunities in the securities finance space.
