Champagne Roundtables and New Session and Speakers Announced

Champagne Roundtables

We are pleased to reveal just a few of the topics to be discussed and speakers to appear at our Champagne Roundtables session, taking place on Monday, 16 October at the conference and sponsored by Women in PGMs.

Rhona O'Connell (Head of Market Analysis - EMEA & Asia, StoneX) will be leading on the topic of silver. There will be two Meet the Speaker discussions, one for investment headed by John Reade (Chief Market Strategist, World Gold Council) and Marcelo Kim (Partner, Paulson & Co.), and one for Asia headed by James Kynge (Global China Editor, Financial Times) and Jeremy East (Chief Executive Officer, East Wind Capital). Women in PGMs Chairperson Wilma Swarts will also be leading a discussion on the implications of lower PGM prices on future primary and secondary supply.

This is just a taste of the insightful discussions with which delegates can engage at our Champagne Roundtables, with more to be confirmed in due course.
