Merchant West Market Insights Conference

The World’s Big Debt Problem (and what it means for South African Investors).

Merchant West held its first in-person event of 2023 on 1 June 2023 in Sandton, Gauteng. This event was open to all clients and suppliers of the Merchant West Group.

The event was hosted by Merchant West Investments where Daniel King, Economist and Head of Fixed Income Investments, presented an in-depth analysis of “The World’s Big Debt Problem (and what it means for South African Investors).

The objective of the event was to provide all attendees with valuable insights into the current economic landscape and how it may impact business and investment opportunities in South Africa. During the event, Daniel discussed the impact of the growing global debt problem and its impact on the South African economy, interest rates, inflation, and investment markets.

We believe that Merchant West Group clients and suppliers found this event particularly informative.

Attendees had the opportunity to gain valuable insights into investment markets,  the broad range of services and solutions that Merchant West has to offer, and network with other businesspeople.
