Fixed income investments

Fixed income investments give you access to the interest-bearing markets in South Africa. They can vary from low-risk cash investments to medium-risk bond investments. The aim of fixed income investments is to generate a high level of interest relative to this asset class at a lower level of risk.

Our investing philosophy and process

Our measure of success is when we can deliver on client outcomes over the appropriate investment horizons at low levels of risk.

We always compare the risk with opportunity in our investments and we follow a valuation-based investing philosophy, meaning we look for instruments we believe have high value but are undervalued by the market. These investments must meet our strict criteria of generating income when interest rates go up or down so that we maximise compounding through the income accrual process.

Outcome-based investing

We place your investment needs at the centre of our investment process so that your financial goals are aligned to your investment outcomes.

Responsible investing

We define responsible investing (RI) as an investment process that includes environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our process. Issues like increasing regulation, the growing need for risk mitigation and a heightened social conscience can be addressed by integrating ESG factors into our investment process.

Rules and regulations

Our multi-asset-class portfolios are complaint with Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act.

Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA)

We are licensed with the FSCA and comply to the market conduct regulations stipulated by the FSCA.

Association for Savings and Investment South Africa (Asisa)

Our governing body, Asisa, provides best practice guidelines to make sure the investor is the focal point of everything we do.
