Zimbabwe – A CONTRARIAN BET?
The story of Zimbabwe’s investment landscape has not been even as many would suppose. While the economy has slowed in recent years, returns have been variable across sectors, and asset classes. With many experiencing asset price declines and losses in general, some are demonstrating good performance. This conference draws economists, fund managers, advisory firms and corporates to hear their perspectives and experiences.
At this conference, key decision makers, investment managers and corporate leaders from Zimbabwe sit with their counterparts from South Africa to candidly discuss risks, opportunities and outlook for Zimbabwe’s economy and investment markets.
These thought leaders respond to some of the toughest questions on Zimbabwe such as: what strategies are successful Zimbabwean companies employing; is there merit in investing in Zimbabwe and what catalysts will likely turn the economic tide.
The Financial Markets Indaba targets individuals and institutions with an interest on Zimbabwe. Below are some of the professions targeted:Development finance institutions Corporate financiers Analysts Fund and asset managers Investment brokers and advisers Corporate executives and senior managers

Portfolio flows and FDI into Zimbabwe have slowed in recent months. Foreign investors cite high risks relative to other frontier and African markets. But many local investors believe risk may be over-priced and Zimbabwe offers superior risk adjusted returns.
This panel brings together Zimbabwean and international fund managers and advisers to discuss their views on Zimbabwe as an investment destination. Attendees will expect to have a broad understanding of key risks and how they should be priced in their investment decision making processes.
The distressed market in Zimbabwe now extends beyond the non-performing loans purchased by the government owned asset manager (ZAMCO). In an economy where most assets and securities are constrained, this panel including Advisors, Fund managers and Distressed experts discusses how investors can earn positive risk adjusted returns in this asset class and in Zimbabwe.
Panelists also discuss best practices in handling bankruptcies, insolvencies and restructuring processes.
Private Equity asset class in Zimbabwe has grown exponentially in recent years, thanks to low equity valuations and the popularity of investor control.
This panel brings together Zimbabwean private equity players and advisors and South African players to discuss private equity value creation strategies that work in Africa and Zimbabwe specifically. Panelists also share an outlook on how this asset class will evolve particularly in Africa.
Networking Break and Luncheon
Zimbabwe’s Ease of doing business ranking has consistently improved in the last three quarters. But has doing business in Zimbabwe actually become easier. More and more local and international companies are finding the environment untenable.
Our panel including South African CEOs with an interest in Zimbabwe, Regulators and Zimbabwean key decision makers share their experiences and views on the subject.
Infrastructure as an investment asset class has remained resilient even in the face of uncertainty and liquidity strain. Yet the asset class is still undeveloped and infrastructure gaps are widening.
This panel assembles South African and Zimbabwean investors and advisors to discuss strategies and available investment products for investing in Energy, Transport and Water infrastructure.
