About the event

Batseta’s Winter Conference is a two-day educational and networking conference event for the retirement industry. This year the topic was ‘Africa Borwa – Region of homebrewed possibilities’ which examined the South African retirement fund reforms including the current economic realities, changing workforce needs and other disruptions which may call for urgent redefining. Finding “homebrewed solutions” is key to long-term sustainability of the retirement fund industry at large and to ensure that members’ contributions are protected during times of distress.

RisCura's Investment Research Lead, Chad Ward, was a presenter at the Batseta Virtual Winter Conference where he looked at developing an inclusive investment industry.
