The 2018 Top 500 Awards has a new date, confirmed to be 10 May 2018. The venue remains Inanda Club, Johannesburg. The postponement, from the original date of 10 May 2018, stems from sustained political uncertainly around the postponement of SONA 2018. This prompted the Directors and strategic partners of the Top 500 platform to shift the date out, to align with the advent and entrenchment of a more settled political and economic backdrop.
Colin Coleman, MD and Partner of Goldman Sachs, is confirmed as a VIP Guest Speaker at the Awards, where he will unpack Goldman Sachs’ position on South Africa being the “big emerging market story” of 2018, especially given the possibility of declining interest rates and a strengthening rand” (as published through Fin24.com).
In light of the very latest political developments – this week – South Africa has experienced widespread positive sentiment, as illustrated by the Forex index strengthening against the Dollar and Euro markets.
