In this edition of our Connecting the Dots podcast we speak to Dr Adrian Saville, Founder and Chief Executive at Cannon Asset Managers and Professor at the Gordon Institute of Business Science.

In this podcast, Adrian discusses the most pertinent challenges facing the asset management industry and how Cannon Asset Managers are dealing with them. He also comments on the state of digital transformation in the South African asset management and investment industry and discusses the adoption of robo-advisor platforms by local investors.

Elsewhere we discuss why South African’s aren’t investing as much as they need to for a comfortable retirement and how technology can help to break down barriers to investment and bring about a behavioural shift amongst those who are currently not investing.

Adrian also discusses an exciting new initiative for merchants that Cannon Asset Managers will be launching soon.
