The 2nd Financial Markets Indaba, an investment summit on Zimbabwe is taking place on the 27th of October 2016 at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg.

With +20 C-suite speakers from South Africa and Zimbabwe participating on 5 lively panels, this is not a conference to miss if you are interested in learning about opportunities, risks and outlook of the Zimbabwean investment landscape from the people making decisions.

Themed "Zimbabwe - a contrarian Bet?" this conference draws the most active decision makers including private equity firms, law firms, banks and fund managers operating and investing in Zimbabwe. With co-panellists comprising South African executives investing and advising in Africa, this event evaluates Zimbabwe's attractiveness relative to sub-Sahara Africa Peers.

The Panellists will respond to some of the toughest questions on Zimbabwe such as: what are investors doing to manage risks, and how are successful Zimbabwean companies able to buck the trend of a weakening economy; and what catalysts will likely turn the economic tide.

The Financial Markets Indaba targets individuals and institutions with an interest on Zimbabwe, including Corporate Finance firms, analysts and DFIs, Fund and Asset Managers, Investment Brokers and Advisers, Private Equity and Venture Capitalists, Corporate Executives and Senior Managers as well as Senior Consultants

The event will allow for networking with up to 200 decision makers in investment markets involved in investing and advising on Zimbabwe, while capturing the risk and opportunity sentiments of top investors and deal makers doing business in Zimbabwe. It will be an opportunity to learn how advisors and successful corporates are managing risk and navigating the Zimbabwean economic environment
