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 offshore funds. We’re immensely proud that our clients have entrusted us to manage over R219 billion of their savings (as of March 2017), making us one of South Africa’s top 10 largest investment managers.
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.
We’re very serious about safeguarding our clients’ money
We’re entrusted with the stewardship of our clients’ assets, a responsibility that we take very seriously. Our reputation as responsible, considered investment professionals is important to us, and we must be above reproach when investing on behalf of our clients.
We’re a long-standing believer in shareholder activism, and we include economic, social and governance (ESG) factors as part of our fundamental investment analysis
We’ve long been a champion of active shareholder involvement on a number of levels, from directly engaging company management to challenging take-over bids. We also engage other market participants and shareholders, even in cases where we may not necessarily hold the stocks in question.
