The 2016 CFA Institute Middle East Investment Conference will take place in Manama, Bahrain on 13 April, bringing together international thought leaders, policymakers, industry experts, and key market participants to consider the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and its role in the global economy.
Last year’s conference, which was held in Kuwait, included an overview of global economic conditions presented by Nouriel Roubini, a discussion of geopolitics and what its comeback means for investors facilitated by Philippa Malmgren, and an examination of the demographic dividend that could await the Middle East led by Amlan Roy.
The 2016 conference will feature sessions with the following speakers:
- Lord Adair Turner, former chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority, who will share his insights on the role of regulators in a changing global economy
- Author and economist Dambisa Moyo, who will discuss investment strategies in a world of technological and demographic shifts
- Willis Sparks, director of global macro at Eurasia Group, who will provide an analysis of MENA’s current internal political dynamics and a review of long-term geopolitical trends
Co-hosted by CFA Society Bahrain and CFA Institute, the 2016 CFA Institute Middle East Investment Conference offers a unique opportunity for delegates to gain firsthand insights from leading experts and network with like-minded peers.
