ceo imgDear SAVCA members and friends,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 2015 SAVCA Private Equity Industry Conference titled Investing for Growth, Investing for Good, to be held at Spier, Stellenbosch, South Africa, on 13 February 2015. Over the years, this conference has grown to become a not-to-be missed annual fixture for the Southern African private equity community. This year promises to build on previous successes with a dynamic line-up of industry stalwarts, acclaimed business experts and insights from institutional investors.

Private equity is acknowledged both for its strong returns for investors and accelerated growth for companies which receive this investment. On a broader level, private equity funding helps develop industries, countries and regions. As the title suggests, the conference will showcase how private equity funding gives investors valuable exposure to African growth, in a way that ensures they have a positive developmental impact on the continent.

With the keen and growing global interest in African investment, the conference will highlight the industry's expertise in seeking opportunities in southern Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. Other focus areas during the conference include a look at elements of successful deal making, insights from CEOs of companies receiving private equity support, the rising importance of incorporating environmental, social and governance factors as well as valued feedback from institutional investors.

As part of SAVCA's mandate to educate stakeholders and investors about private equity, it will present a master-class on private equity on the afternoon of 12 February. This session is exclusively for qualifying institutional investors and is complimentary.
On behalf of SAVCA, we look forward to welcoming you to Spier.


Erika van der Merwe
CEO: Southern African Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (SAVCA)
