A passionate team, committed to getting you more.
We want to get people more money when they retire.
Yes, every investment company can say this. But their sincerity is questionable. And their failure is visible: only 6% of South Africans can retire comfortably. Sure, that’s partly because of individual behaviour (people not saving enough, or cashing out their savings), but it’s mainly because of the industry’s behaviour. Institutions charge too much for products that deliver too little.
They make a lot of money off their customers, and not enough for them. We aim to change that. But this isn’t just a lofty moral imperative. We have a method, which we have tested, which we know works and would have worked over any and every period in the last 100 years. We know that if you invest with us, you will have more money when it matters most.
Experienced. Accomplished. Awarded.
Our investment team brings decades of industry experience in driving our investment approach.
