Who's picking up the cheque? A focus on financial wellness at the Vision 2030 Summit

Who's Picking up the Cheque? The Determinants of National Savings Rates in Emerging Market Economies: Local Challenges and Opportunities will be the topic under discussion at the Financial Services breakaway session sponsored by MMI Holdings' Corporate and Public Sector (MMI C&PS) at the Second Annual Vision 2030 Summit in June.
Following the successful launch of the inaugural Vision 2030 Summit endorsed by the National Planning Commission, Topco Media will host the second Vision 2030 Summit on 8 and 9 June at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, Johannesburg.

“The aim of the Vision 2030 Summit is to provide a platform for members of the Presidency, key government dignitaries and private sector leaders to share insights, engage and discuss the vision for the National Development Plan (NDP). It highlights key aspects around Vision 2030 and how key organisations and individuals can contribute to make it a reality,” says said Ryland Fisher, Topco Media Editorial Director.

MMI’s breakaway session aims to unpack and debate how we can grow the national savings levels needed to fund the NDP. Justice Malala, renowned political analyst and journalist, will facilitate the programme which will include a presentation by Prof. Chris Malikane, Associate Professor of Economics at the School of Economic and Business Sciences at Wits University, and a panel discussion in which Prof. Malikane will be joined by Rowan Burger, Managing Executive of Strategy and Market Development at MMI C&PS and Prof. Carel van Aardt, professor at Unisa’s Bureau of Market Research.

“We would like to share our learnings as to how individuals and corporates achieve financial wellness and debate how we extend this to the national level in the context of the NDP. Our session provides a platform for debate as to how we co-create a public/private partnership to raise savings and drive growth,” says Burger.

MMI’s Corporate and Public Sector is the division of the JSE-listed financial services group, MMI Holdings that focuses on understanding and meeting the financial wellness needs of small, medium and large group clients in the corporate and public sector segments, by offering and measuring the impact of a holistic range of solutions that seek to grow business’ income statements, protect their balance sheets and enhance their sustainability.

Anyone interested in local challenges and opportunities in determinants of national savings rates in emerging market economies and how these pools of savings contribute to economic growth is encouraged to attend this breakaway session.
