EFG to unlock prospects for global investors


EFG Hermes Holding kicked off its 16th annual One-on-One Conference in Dubai.

EFG Hermes Holding, an impact-driven universal bank in Egypt and the leading investment bank franchise in Frontier Emerging Markets (FEM), kicked off its 16th annual One-on-One Conference in Dubai under the patronage of Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of Finance of the United Arab Emirates.

The conference, taking place on Monday a hotel in Duabi, will play host to a vast number of meetings with key executives and investors until its conclusion on Sept.22, 2022.  Headlined “Weathering Inflation – Finding Focus in FEM”, the One-on-One Conference continues to unlock unparalleled prospects for global institutional investors (II) and active fund managers to gain insights on key trends influencing FEMs and to explore investment opportunities through one-on-one meetings with c-suite executives representing prominent equities across four continents. The conference witnesses the participation of 205 companies from 33 countries, in direct meetings with over 655 institutional investors and fund managers representing 270 international institutions.

“We’re excited to finally bring back the physical iteration of the One-on-One since the onset of Covid-19 under the patronage of Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. This year’s conference – our biggest and most highly anticipated one to date – comes at a riveting time for FEMs as the global economy stands in the face of ongoing challenges. While the world has certainly managed to weather the storm of the covid-19 aftermath, supply chain disruptions, paired with rising inflationary pressures that reached an all-time high, continue to dampen economic recovery.

In light of this economic backdrop, our role has become more vital to act as a conduit for investments. We feel extremely committed to ensuring investors find localised growth stories across FEM,” said Karim Awad, EFG Hermes Holding’s Group Chief Executive Officer.
