2 weeks ago
The Covid-19 pandemic has had devastating effects on everyone for the last two years. The disruptions for the world economy have been broad-based, with unprecedented events in all sectors. This year ushered in new challenges for market participants, with rising inflationary pressures, increasing interest rates, persisting supply chain bottlenecks and economic disruptions.
Absa Investments hosted the annual Fixed Income Conference under the theme, 'Beyond Black Swans: Fixed Income Opportunities’ against the backdrop of these events, where we explored and shared what investment strategies can help our clients manage the risks and the opportunities that arise from the current market context, and could assist in shaping their frameworks for similar events in the future.
Moderated by Absa Investment’s Zamantungwa Khumalo, the conference featured Melvyn Lubega: Co-Founder and Director of Go1, Political Analyst, Dr Ralph Mathekga and our very own Head of the Fixed Income Franchise, James Turp who provided insights on managing the risks and opportunities within the Fixed Income space.
