Personal Investor - About Us
 

About us

We offer investors a focused range of unit trusts to suit all risk profiles and return objectives. Our unit trusts include equity funds, balanced funds, property funds, income funds, tax-free funds and international funds. We’re immensely proud that our clients have entrusted us to manage over R210 billion of their savings (as of December 2016), making us one of South Africa’s top 10 largest investment managers.

We're about protecting and growing our clients' savings

We help our clients achieve their financial goals, consistently applying our prudent value investing approach with the aim of protecting and growing their savings over time.

Our investment team, with over 400 years of collective experience, is dedicated to actively managing our clients’ funds, and we draw on our global affiliates for international expertise and best practice.

IN BRIEF

We're focused on investment excellence

Since 1994, we’ve built up an enviable track record for consistently strong investment performance thanks to our single-minded focus on achieving excellence. We’ve also been committed to using the same prudent value investing philosophy for the past two decades.

Our entire staff of over 150 professionals are firmly aligned behind this focus. Many of our people have stayed with us for many years, testament to our strong culture of ownership and responsibility. We also benefit from a flat management structure and our team approach allows our investment professionals to focus on what they do best - managing clients' savings.

Responsible Investing
