African Forum 2019

Date: Wednesday 18 September 2019
Location: ABSA, Johannesburg

Our next African Forum for banks and insurers will be hosted by ABSA in Johannesburg on 18 September 2019.

Launched in 2016, our regional forums are held annually around the world. They provide a great opportunity for us to focus directly on the specific needs of financial firms in those regions, and enable participants to build connections and discuss topical issues in a relaxed setting with their regional peers.

For members of ORX, it's free to attend the forum. Please visit the members website for more details and to book your place.

If you are not currently a member, but would like to know more about the event, please get in touch.
