Asia Securities will host its 4th Annual Sri Lanka Investment Conference over three days this week. Titled 2021: The Investors’ Dilemma, the event will explore the outlook for the economic rebound and financial markets next year, in what will surely be a fascinating investing environment. Considering current safety concerns, Asia Securities will deliver the conference virtually with three two-hour sessions which will be streamed live on December 15th, 16th, and 17th.
Asia Securities Chairman Dumith Fernando, speaking of the conference said, “We continuously try to understand our clients’ biggest concerns. While they look ahead optimistically to a 2021 recovery, there are many unknowns that will affect business and investment decisions. This year’s Asia Securities Sri Lanka Investment Conference aims to address the dilemmas our clients are grappling with by exploring the root causes of a possible recovery and what global and local indicators they should follow.”
The conference features a list of well-known experts in the areas of fiscal, monetary, socio-economic and health policy, global and local financial markets, and corporate leadership. Ajith Nivard Cabraal, Minister of Money & Capital Market and Social Enterprise Reform will deliver a keynote address at the conference and join a panel discussion on the policy and financial sector priorities for a strong 2021 recovery.
Two global financial experts will also speak at the conference.
