Hedge Fund Conferences in Africa are small in number, but often high in quality. The Hedge News Africa conference is one of a small number of Hedge Fund events running in South Africa. Headline speakers include Peter Astleford of Dechert, Bulent Badsha of Sanlam Alternative Investments, Brianna Barrett of BlackRock Alternative Advisors, and more. The event comes at a very interesting time for the investment industry and will no doubt provide an opportunity for stimulating debate. This well established Symposium always attracts a high calibre of delegates and speakers who are leaders in their field.
