The 9th Capital Market Conference (CAPM) is scheduled to be held on 24 August. This will be the second year in succession that the event is being held on a virtual platform, thereby enabling a much larger reach. 

The panel of speakers will feature a cross section of industry leaders, market analysts and regulators, thus providing the delegates attending this annual event with a multitude of perspectives. The keynote address will be delivered by Colombo Stock Exchange CEO Rajeeva Bandaranayake.

The stock markets have continued to prove resilient, a redeeming feature in a bleak and dismal economy. The stock markets have indeed been the saving grace in a financial marketplace where attractive investment opportunities have been at a premium. The IPOs have generated a tremendous response, with the oversubscription of successive Issuances a seeming manifestation of the general sentiment that pervades the market. Low interest rates and the paucity of alternative investment opportunities of a similar ilk, have contributed to the overall positivity of the stock market.

Many topics of current interest and relevance, such as the recently enacted SEC Act, will form part of the discussion. 

The deliberations will also encompass some of the potential innovative additions to the Investment product suite; crowdfunding, for instance. 

Existing products, such as Unit Trusts and even more recent additions, such as REITs, will also be revisited. The creation of an eco-system that would contribute to a more robust capital market will also feature as a key topic of discussion at what promises to be an interesting afternoon of discussion among luminaries.For more details of the event and for registrations, contact +94775837575 (WhatsApp) or [email protected] or visit https://www.facebook.com/utoeduconsultevents.
