EFG Hermes is proud to organize the 10th Annual EFG Hermes One-on-One, the largest MENA-dedicated investment conference held globally
That search for opportunities will be the topic of the day as international investors controlling some USD 7 trillion in AUM meet today in Dubai for the 10th Annual EFG Hermes One-on-One conference.
The 10th Annual EFG Hermes One-on-One, scheduled from 9-12 March 2014 under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and President of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), will see 410 investors from more than 220 institutions meeting with senior management from 96 companies spanning 14 nations.
Participating companies are drawn from a broad list of sectors including financial services, energy, consumer discretionary, consumer staples, telecommunications services, health care, industrials, utilities, materials, and real estate and hospitality.
The conference’s main session will kick off with a welcome note from Karim Awad followed by a keynote speech by Dr. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, professor of risk engineering at New York University and author of the best-sellers “The Black Swan,” “Fooled by Randomness” and “Antifragile.”
The gathering will also include focused panel discussions on the UAE (“The Road Ahead”) and Egypt (“Egypt and the Challenges Ahead”), both moderated by EFG Hermes Head of Research Wael Ziada. More than 6,500 investor meetings will be conducted over the three days of the conference.
