We are a highly experienced, passionate and stable team that has worked together for more than 10 years.
Our collective investment experience exceeds 110 years of advising to and managing most of the largest institutional client’s assets in South Africa. Since the inception of GraySwan have we not lost any investment consultants making us one of the most stable and experienced investment teams in the industry. The core of our team has been working together for more than 10 years and has an average investment experience of 17 years per team member.
Not only have we successfully consulted to most of the largest institutional funds in South Africa but we have also previously managed many of these Fund’s assets whilst working for Sanlam’s offshore investment management business. Our wealth of experience over the past two decades in both investment consulting and investment management enables us to understand our clients needs.
Very few investment consulting teams have actual investment management experience. This places us in the superior position to implement not only optimal but also practical investment strategies and to negotiate mandates and fee structures that is most beneficial to our clients.
During the past four years we have successfully extended our proven institutionalized investment advisory and wealth management approach to private investors, corporate investors as well as family offices. We now service the entire spectrum of investors and all our clients have access to our best views and our cost efficient and most importantly top performing track records.
As with our motto, “always count”, we test and verify everything. Each month we conduct more than 30 different detailed investment manager peer group GraySwan ScoreCards. Every report encapsulates more than 30 pages of performance and risk related statistics and form part of various quantitative reports, which we use as an initial screening methodology in our investment manager research process.
