karinSummit: Financial Markets Regulation: 1 October 2015

Following the huge success of the inaugural SAIFM Regulatory Summit held on 10 September 2014, the SAIFM Board has decided that this should be an annual event that would highlight and explain regulatory matters and constitute an independent platform for interaction between industry participants and regulators.
