Our capabilities and philosophy


Our investment philosophy

Our unique proposition is our ability to combine different investment styles and strategies to arrive at the most appropriate solutions for investors’ needs.

We follow an unconstrained investment approach by leveraging the depth of experience, expertise and skills of our people, with our relationships within the broader FirstRand Group.

People plus process equals performance

We believe that asset allocation is the primary source of investment return. Our top down asset allocation approach is based on global macro views, which feed into sector allocation, and ultimately individual stock selection.

Long-term investors

We buy quality companies and aim to hold these investments for a 3 to 5 year time horizon. Share selection is made within a team-based culture that promotes ideas and vigorous debate. We typically manage high-conviction, concentrated portfolios of between 18 and 30 shares.

Broad investment capabilities

Our fund range includes domestic and offshore capabilities spanning equity, targeted return, multi asset, fixed income, property and money market solutions. To enhance investors’ returns and provide greater diversification, we also offer access to alternative investments such as private equity and credit co-investment opportunities.
