Equities

Equities

We invest in equity-only mandates with an objective to create long-term capital growth for our clients by investing in shares that we believe offer value and the potential for higher risk-adjusted returns over time.​ Our equities strategies are available as South African domestic only funds; global equities and international equities. ​

Fixed income

Fixed income

Our approach to fixed income investing is rooted in a commitment to delivering consistent risk-adjusted returns while preserving capital.​ Our fixed income process incorporates an overall macro-economic lens, narrowing in on fixed income, thereby combining a fundamental approach with tactical positioning.​ The capability is available within a domestic and global balanced fund context and as stand-alone strategies (enhanced cash, bonds and flexible fixed income).​

Multi-asset class

Multi-asset class

Our multi-asset class portfolios invest in equities, fixed income, commodities and property. They aim to achieve real returns and deliver long-term capital growth while minimising the risk of capital loss.​
Our multi-asset class portfolios combine our top-down asset allocation approach and our bottom-up instrument specific skill to construct a diversified portfolio. This capability is available as a South African-only domestic multi-asset class offering or as global multi-asset class solution, incorporating both South African and global asset classes (and subject to Regulation 28 of the South African Pension Funds Act).​
