CFA Society Nigeria will host a 2-day conference on 8-9 November 2018 at Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, with the theme, “Let’s Measure Up”. With an impressive line-up of international and local speakers, the Conference, which begins 8:00 am, will provide a platform for the private and public sectors to interact and hold discussions as it concerns the investment climate in Nigeria.
CFA Society Nigeria Investment Conference is the investment industry’s leading event that brings together senior executives, regulators, academics and policymakers under one roof to discuss topics that promote the development of the industry.
On the second day of the conference, there will be a Women in Investment Management Workshop where Ms. Carla Harris, globally renowned speaker, author and Vice Chairman & Managing Director at Morgan Stanley will be the anchor facilitator. Carla will be sharing her career experience as one of the few black women that have risen to the top of the investment banking/asset management profession globally. She will be joined by other leading female executives in the investment industry as speakers at this event.
The Conference will challenge our industry to measure up to the very high standards expected of a forward-looking industry. In a fast-changing world with global competition for capital, Nigeria cannot afford to lag behind. It can no longer be business-as-usual.
Expected highlights of the event include an on-stage interview of His Excellency, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Chairman of Nigeria’s Economic Management Team, and the opportunity to hear about Nigeria’s Ease of Doing Business reforms as well as Monetary and Exchange Rate Policies in an election year. Also, free copies of Carla Harris’ book – “Strategize to Win” – will be given to all attendees of the WIM Workshop as well as a book signing by the author.
