The landscape of pension funds in Africa is evolving rapidly, with challenges of innovation and compliance uppermost on everyone’s mind. The 13th PENSIONS AFRICA 2018 SUMMIT to be held between June 27-29, 2018 at the Sun City Resort, Pilansberg, South Africa is agolden opportunity for all industry professionals align their strategy, vision and operations with the future.
Formerly known as the Annual Eastern and Southern Africa Pension Fund Conference, the Pensions Africa 2018 Summit is organized around the theme of “Glocal Emphasis on Innovation, Trends, Leadership, Markets and Digital Hybrid Excellence”. The main impetus for the event comes from the aim of reforming African pension funds though transfer of best practices, and how to go about turning a 2018 fund into a fund for 2030.
Rated as the premier event for the pension fund industry, the Summit highlights this year include a Post Summit Workshop and a dedicated, pre-conference Trustee Training Masterclass, that will shed light on assessing design practices for pension funds to thrive in a changing environment. The event will be presented by Annette Flower, Retirement Fund Facilitator, Pension Revelations & Independent Trustee Training Specialist, Cape Town, South Africa. Another attraction this year is the 2-day pragmatically structured program with professionals.
There are many modern challenges faced by fund managers, principal officers and trustees, and one major challenge is to stay abreast with innovations such as Hybrid Funds, Digital Fund Dashboards, and regulatory dispute submissions online. The ‘Glocal’ emphasis requires fund professionals to not duplicate or copy other models, but come up with local solutions for local challenges. Another issue tackled by the Summit is that of compliance, where many African fund managers are facing a crisis. The Summit will show the way out of these conundrums, and will reveal how to upgrade strategies.
The Pensions Africa 2018 Summit will be led by handpicked participants, practitioners and stakeholders sourced from around the world. Established in 2005, the event helps fund managers ensure they generate an everlasting retirement income for their clients, and ensure contributions as inheritance in a rigid economic environment.
