SAICA Leadership in a time of crisis series

Webcast #23: The impact of Covid-19 on the Investment and Funds industry


Who should attend?

Preparers, Auditors, Fund Administrators, Investors



The current global health pandemic caused by the Covid-19 outbreak has led to widespread losses across global financial markets.


This is a global phenomenon and South Africa is no exception. Many investors from around the world, including South Africans, are becoming increasingly concerned about the impact on what may be their biggest investment – their retirement savings.


Combined with the South Africa’s sovereign’s credit rating, low expected growth rates and some form of lockdown in the winter month’s investors are worried about how they respond.


In these unprecedented times there is opportunity to find solutions and answers that are innovative, disruptive and resilient.


Join us for an interactive conversation with industry leaders as we discuss the impact of this pandemic on the South African Investments and Funds industry.
