Zoom in on risk reduction for 2021

Home Engineering Associations Zoom in on risk reduction for 2021

EXPORTERS Eastern Cape and Peregrine Treasury Solutions are hosting an online discussion which aims to get to grips with how best local businesses can hedge their risk in what look set to be another unpredictable year.

“As part of Exporters Eastern Cape’s mission to encourage and assist South African companies to become more globally competitive on the challenging export stage, it is essential to have a deep and up-to-date knowledge of events around the world. It is also essential that exporters know how to mitigate currency risk in the face of ever-changing social and geo-political developments,” the organisation said in a statement.

“This discussion will address all of these points and more as Citadel’s Chief Economist, Maarten Ackerman, provides a detailed overview of what to expect from 2021. He will outline global headwinds and tailwinds, and also hone in on the expectations at home as we approach February’s much-anticipated Budget Speech.”

Ackerman will be joined on the virtual podium by Peregrine Treasury Solutions Executive Director, Paul Muller, who will focus on how exporters can best guard against taking undue risks during these challenging times.

The event takes place on Thursday, 18 February 2021 at 10am. Register here. The link to the online platform will be shared upon RSVP.
