Investment Summit brings together 10 of world’s top investment experts

The Allan Gray Investment Summit will bring together over 3000 investors who will gather to listen to investment experts from around the world.  From where to invest, both locally and globally, and what to avoid, the Summit is for investors who are interested in growing their long-term wealth.

Some of the world’s biggest fund managers will be flying in for the event and investors will get a rare glimpse into where they are investing.  BlackRock, Columbia Threadneedle, Orbis and Schroders will discuss where they see the opportunities right now and what they like about their global stock picks.

Investors can also look forward to robust debate when fund managers from Allan Gray, Coronation, Perpetua and Prudential take to the stage to share their views on what’s driving the markets and where to invest to protect against the risks.   

This year we are particularly excited to have Ricardo Semler present at the Summit.  He is a unique global business leader who has implemented innovative business management principles with great success.  It will be fascinating to listen and learn from his example.  Semler may be better known to the South African audience as the author of Maverick and The Seven Day Weekend.   

For those who are keen to get in early and invest in a start-up, entrepreneurs will be pitching their businesses and offering the audience a stake in exchange for funding.  You never know… you could spot the next Uber!

We have no doubt that this year’s Summit will allow all investors, no matter the stage of their investment journey, to walk away with valuable information on how to protect and grow their wealth.

The Summit was oversubscribed last year so we have decided to add Cape Town to the agenda in 2018.

The Allan Gray Investment Summit 2018 will take place on 17 July at the Cape Town Convention Centre and on 18 July at the Sandton Convention Centre and is open to the public.  For more information and to book tickets, visit
