IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL COULSON

Long-standing IAS member Michael Coulson died on 29 June. Michael contracted a kidney infection while on his annual pilgrimage to watch the cricket in England and returned to SA a few weeks ago. His condition worsened and he died in the Rosebank Clinic on Monday 29 June. He was 76.

Michael had a huge intellect-a member of MENSA, bon viveur, art connoisseur-and will be sadly missed by all who knew him. He was a stalwart of the IAS and may even have been a founding member. Although best known as a journalist, notably as deputy editor of the FM, Michael was also an investment analyst and worked as such in both Johannesburg and in London. His love and encyclopedic knowledge of the game of cricket were legendary; for Michael, being at Lord’s to watch England play Australia in The Ashes, was the closest thing to perfection.

Investment Analysts Society of South Africa (NPC)

The IAS is a non-profit making body and was registered in 1968 as an “association not for gain”. We function as a liaison body for the investment analysts profession.

The IAS currently has 1800 members drawn from all walks of the analysts profession including Investment Banks and Houses, Fund Managers, Brokers, Insurance Companies, pension Funds, etc. In order to qualify for membership applicants must be employed in the field of investment analysis and must have either a post graduate business qualification or at least 3 years experience as an investment analyst.

We adopted a “Code of Good Practice”, a copy of which is presented on this website for your information.

Each year, the IAS promotes a prestigious awards ceremony in recognition of the skills of those listed companies who win the award for “Best Communicating and Reporting”.
