Meet the Managers” adopting a new format for impactful sessions with fund managers 

The Collaborative Exchange will be running a series of “masterclass” conferences throughout South Africa in July 2019 where 29 local and international fund managers will be present. 

The format is an impactful way for financial advisers to see 8 of their chosen fund managers within the space of one day and earn CPD points for doing so. Meet the Managers is now in its third year of existence and has been attended by about 1300 financial advisers last year at sessions in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. 

Kevin Hinton, a Director of The Collaborative Exchange says, “Meet the Managers provides an insightful platform for financial advisers who want to keep abreast of financial markets and the funds that they have invested their clients’ assets with.” 

Both large and emerging investment managers participate as well as domestic and international fund managers. So, advisers can ensure that they also get the opportunity to see new firms that are emerging. Hinton says, “we do this in an impactful way in ensuring that the sessions are small and intimate, and adviser can get “up close and personal” with fund managers. It is widely accepted that the TED talk format is impactful - short, concise and powerful sessions and generally not longer than 18 minutes.” 

Marc du Plooy, the Managing Director of Wealth Associates and Chairperson of the Financial Intermediaries Association says, “You know what I like about 'Meet the Managers'? It is that you actually meet the managers! What better way to round out your perspective of economics, volatility, asset classes, portfolio construction than by listening to and engaging with a number of top class managers in a series of intensive personal interactions. It allows you to really test your own understanding in the construct of your portfolios for your clients. Even if you are not currently using all those managers, it is incredibly valuable and insightful to listen to the views of other top class industry professionals. It can only make you a better investment professional.”
