ABOUT OUR FUNDS

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

OUR MISSION

To deliver consistent levels of return for our investors  of 15% to 20% p.a. on a 3 year rolling cycle, as we set new standards in transparency and service.

OUR FOCUS

Our focus is  based in the SA Fixed Income market, where we look to generate returns through our core investment strategies. We create a return blended from cyclical, secular relative value and directional opportunities across government bonds, cash and interest rate derivatives such as FRAs, Swaps and Options.

RESEARCH

Underlying this is an investment process based on macroeconomic research to identify these opportunities and monetise them in the most efficient way from a risk management perspective.

AIM

Our aim is to build long term relationships with our investor base where there is equilibrium between sustainable out performance and capital preservation. We want to educate long term investors in South Africa of the massive upside to having exposure to the fixed income asset class which has long been over looked in the alternative investment space.
