On the horizon
The 2018 calendar of investor conferences gets underway next week. First up, our friends at EFG Hermes will host their annual Egypt Day, which gets underway next Monday at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza. Last year’s event saw institutional investors with more than USD 3.5 tn in assets under management attend President Abdel Fattah El Sisi met with last year’s gang, while CBE Governor Tarek Amer and other members of the Ismail cabinet’s economic group also gave investors face time. This year’s event will begin with the firm’s annual CEO dinner.
The following week will see Arqaam Capital hold its Egypt Investors Conference 2018 on 22 January. The conference will host senior C-Suite executives from some 20 listed Egyptian companies for one-on-one meetings at the Vineyard Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa.
