Good morning!

I am indeed honored to speak before this distinguished forum. I would like to express my thanks to the organizing committee of this conference for the invitation to participate in this session, and to deliver the keynote address. Let me also acknowledge the important role of the GenAfrica Asset Managers Limited in the economy particularly with respect to pension fund management and property investment advisory. Although your investment philosophy is to achieve investment returns without exposing clients' assets to unnecessary risk, we have seen heightened uncertainties in the domestic and global economies which require closer monitoring.
