Standard Bank Group is proud to be sponsoring the IIF Inaugural Africa Financial Summit, in association with the Institute of International Finance (IIF). This is the IIF’s first high level gathering of financial leaders.

Hosted by Jacko Maree, Group Chief Executive of Standard Bank, the summit is taking place from 11-13 November at the Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa, and will have a special focus on Africa.

Highlighting the need for greater networking opportunities in the financial services industry, more than 100 financial sector leaders from across the continent, jetted into Cape Town. Global market participants who are active in Africa, or have an interest in expanding their operations in Africa are there.

The summit’s mission is to support the financial industry in the prudent management of risks, including sovereign risk; the development of best practices and standards; and the advocacy of regulatory, financial and economic policies that are in the broad interests of its members and global financial stability.

Those attending are exchanging views on the progress and prospects for Africa’s economies, discussing challenges facing Africa’s banking sector, and considering how best to deepen the continent’s financial markets and promote investment in Africa.
