The third Global Investor South Africa Masterclass brings together all the participants in the securities lending chain. A key theme will be how the business can be made more efficient and reduce costs. Alternative routes to market will be discussed such as CCPs and peer-to-peer lending as well as measures to reducing pressure on prime broker balance sheets. Hedge funds have the opportunity to discuss prime services with PBs and hear from agent lenders and beneficial owners. Beneficial owners are also, of course, investors in many asset classes – including hedge funds. The key focus for the day is education both of the buyside and by ensuring we have panellists from the London market it allows us the chance to help educate regional industry practitioners.
