Inequality and poverty are significant threats to South Africa’s long-term sustainability and prosperity. The investment industry, which should be a source of innovation and jobs, and a driver of accountability, is not fulfilling its potential to make South African companies better corporate citizens. Changing this and shifting the focus away from short-term returns requires far more than sustainability reporting. Join us for a bold, candid discussion about the challenges to responsible investment in South Africa, and how we can overcome them.

Join some of South Africa’s foremost thought-leaders on responsible investment for a frank and courageous conversation on investment, inequality and corporate citizenship.

Speakers:

  • Nicky Newton-King – CEO, JSE Limited
  • Sipho Pityana – President, BUSA; Chairman, AngloGold Ashanti
  • Andrew Canter – Chief Investment Officer, Futuregrowth Asset Management
  • Wendy Luhabe – Economic Activist & Social Entrepreneur
  • Shainal Sukha – Managing Director, Sukha & Associates
  • Theo Botha – Shareholder Activist
  • Asief Mohamed – Chief Investment Officer, Aeon Investment Management
  • Jon Duncan – Head of Responsible Investment, Old Mutual Investment Group
  • Ann Crotty – Author, financial journalist
  • Tracey Davies – Executive Director, Just Share

Session 1: Challenges

Inequality, poverty and climate change pose severe threats to SA’s long-term prosperity. Why have integrated reporting and commitments to responsible investment not done more to drive better corporate behaviour that builds a more just and equal society?

Session 2: Doing things differently

What steps can we take to improve investment decision-making to better address social and environmental challenges? How can investors have a more positive impact on our country while still generating returns?
