Insight 2022

18 May 2022 | 11am - 1pm

Sustainability in finance goes further than ensuring our money lasts our lifetime or what kind of inheritance we leave for our children.  It’s taken on a responsibility that is larger than ourselves and our immediate family.  Today we need to consider how the investments we make impact the world that we will leave for our children and subsequent generations.  We are compelled to ask how our investments can be better used for a environmentally sustainable and equitable world.

Join the Foundation team and exciting guest speakers, Jeremy Gardiner, Director of NinetyOne Investments and Brandon Zietsman, Founder of Portfoliometrix for key insights on the current investment environment.

Key take-outs will be understanding what role we can play in economic sustainability. We will also discuss how we can protect ourselves against the current geo-political tensions and high inflation.

You are welcome to invite friends and family.

Director of NinetyOne Investments

Jeremy is a regular voice in the media, at conferences and to the investment-related world at large, responsible for commenting on current affairs, economics and investment markets.

In his position, Jeremy is inundated with information from the world’s top analysts, on everything from politics to petrol. Jeremy’s challenge is consolidating all this information and bringing it to you in an understandable format that you will find interesting and informative.

Jeremy has been with the firm for 30 years, during which time the business grew from a small Cape Town Asset Management firm to a significant global business managing clients assets of more than R2.8 trillion*. Jeremy also served on the board of Western Province/Stormers rugby from 2003 to 2005, a period in which their performance was particularly poor!

Although he studied accounting at the University of Cape Town and Economics at the University of Witwatersrand, Jeremy is neither an accountant nor an economist, but uses these skills to demystify what the accountants and economists are saying.
