Investec Conference Week consists of two conferences which take place over five days every November. Through the long-standing relationships with our UK and South African mid-to-large cap corporates, we facilitate over circa 3,000 conversations with institutional investors.

The Best Ideas Conference has been running for almost a decade, spanning over the first three days of conference week. Take a look at the highlights below.

As the UK economy faces mounting headwinds and inflation continuously breaches peak levels, investors are naturally concerned with the state of the market. Refreshingly, the recent Investec Best Ideas Conference 2022 provided them with reasons to be optimistic.

Our annual gathering of corporates and investors was held in person for the first time since Covid-19, bringing together 75 of the UK’s leading companies and 267 investors from more than 130 firms over three days of meetings. On average, businesses saw 30 investors in a day, while each investor was able to speak to about 10 groups.

From Fever-Tree to Future, Greggs to JD Sports and Watches of Switzerland, every sector was represented, with companies that are leaders in the UK and globally to smaller boutique operators and innovative platforms pioneering new technologies.

Although investors quizzed corporates on their resilience to the brewing macroeconomic storm, the overriding tone was one of confidence. Companies made it clear that we are far from falling into another global financial crisis of the magnitude that was 2008.
