Bovest Function Invitation: 2019 ELECTION: NOW WHAT?

Hereby, Bovest Wealth invites you to our Function to be held on Monday 10 June, at the Ivory Manor Boutique Hotel in Pretoria from 18:00 for 18:30 to 20:30.

After the National and Provincial elections took place on the 8th of May, we got asked a number of questions regarding the future of SA and with specific reference to personal wealth and how it will be dealt with in the Ramaphosa era.

For this reason, we thought it appropriate to invite a group of speakers – each a specialist in their field of expertise, to obtain answers to the questions we have as South Africans.

We would like to give our Bovest clients the first opportunity to book their seats before the public will be invited on Monday 27 May – seats are limited, so be sure to reserve your seen asap.
Clients are also welcome to invite a guest along.

Tickets are R200 for Bovest clients and R300 for non-clients. The cost includes a welcome drink, main course and dessert.
