Each of these franchises takes responsibility for its own client investment outcomes, team and talent management and risk management. However, the same investment philosophy is applied throughout our operations, including in overall asset allocation research and recommendations.
This segregated, yet synthesised approach provides you with the best expertise and research. For instance, the asset class-specific franchises (Equities, Fixed Interest, Property, and Pan-Africa) manage their own funds and research. The multi-asset class franchises (Balanced, Targeted Returns), on the other hand, leverage off research conducted by other franchises as well as that directed by our Chief Investment Strategist.
We are confident you will value our active investment philosophy that adopts a long-term, pragmatic value approach and taps into the strong fundamentals that underpin our asset and investment choices.
Our range of pooled (Unit Trusts) and segregated portfolios provide access to a range of mandates that offer diverse investment opportunities and returns. From low-risk fixed interest and absolute funds to mid-level balanced and property opportunities to high-risk investments in pan-African and domestic equities, we have you covered.
Our clear and defined investment philosophy has delivered sustainable returns, irrespective of whether the investments have been in our pooled or segregated mandates.
No matter your choice of instrument or investment option, you can be assured that we are committed to meeting your specific needs and will deliver unparalleled service.
Our segregated mandates each possess a specific focus designed to cater to differing needs, providing you with the ultimate choice of underlying investment vehicle and risk profile.
We can help you prepare for a changing future by protecting your wealth now. Any number of changing circumstances can cause your wealth to diminish, some inevitable and some unpredictable. New taxes and legislation, volatile markets, inflation, changes in your personal life, everyday risks such as fire and theft... One thing is certain – you need to plan to protect your wealth.
We can work with you to help structure your wealth in a way that minimises the impact of changes. We can help you diversify your assets to spread risk, or discuss trusts that could protect your wealth locally and abroad. We may be able to introduce you to tax experts to help you minimise your current and future tax liabilities.
We will also try to help you find a balance of protection and flexibility. Protecting your wealth needs to be done in a way that doesn’t cause its own problems such as barring you from access to your capital for fixed periods when you may need access to it.
It’s your life. A plan to protect your wealth will help ensure you to live it according to your priorities.
Wealth creates possibilities. We can help you use your wealth to get what you want from your life. Everyone enjoys using their wealth in different ways. For you, it might be the joy of travel, helping others through philanthropy, sharing your success with family and friends or your passion for collecting. It might be the simple freedom to do what you want, when you want.
Whatever your priorities, we can help you use your wealth by ensuring it’s working for you now and is structured to be flexible for the future.
That might mean unlocking the value of your wealth by borrowing against assets you want to keep, even with specialised lending for items such as yachts and planes. It might mean helping you manage your wealth alongside your international lifestyle - with day to day banking, international mortgages or property services.
