WHO WE ARE
Ngwedi is an experienced, award-winning team of investment professionals with a common goal of consistently delivering market-leading investment performance through progressive fixed income, multi-asset class, and equity investment solutions.
Our vision is based not only on our investment responsibility of delivering market-leading performance, but also on our social responsibility of empowering our clients to contribute to an equitable society.
We believe that our owner-managed structure, excellent qualifications, relevant hands-on experience, client relationships and top-performing award-winning track record sets us apart from our peers. Ngwedi is established with a strong corporate culture of operational excellence and a focus on harmony, respect, complete transparency, open communication and fairness for all stakeholders.
The Ngwedi staff are all well-respected and seasoned investment professionals, each having between 10 and 20 years of relevant industry experience. Ngwedi’s portfolio managers have a strong performance track record across various asset classes and have managed assets in excess of R60 Billion across a broad range of offerings including money market, enhanced yield, income, multi-asset and enhanced equity solutions.
Our value proposition is based on a differentiated product offering, which includes premium interest-bearing solutions (money market, enhanced yield and income), as well as low-cost enhanced bond, inflation-linked bond, multi-asset and equity solutions. Our enhanced solutions are not only more cost effective relative to existing product offerings available in the market, but are designed to outperform without taking unnecessary relative risk.
UNIQUE AND ROBUST CREDIT PROCESS
We prioritise preventing losses rather than only searching for prospective profits. Our overriding belief is that by minimising losses, we can ensure superior, consistent and stable returns over the long term. The compounded effect of steady positive returns over time leads to long-term wealth creation. Avoiding credit events and avoiding capital drawdowns is hugely beneficial for clients who then enjoy these compounded positive returns over time.
OPTIMAL OPERATING STRUCTURE
We have a dedicated CEO responsible for strategy and business growth, a COO who ensures the smooth functioning of the business and a CFO who manages the firm’s finances. The way in which Ngwedi is structured and managed creates an ideal environment in which our investment professionals have adequate time and capacity to focus on delivering performance and can take a long-term perspective when pursuing investment opportunities.
We are the custodians of our clients’ financial well-being. We partner with our clients to offer them solutions which are tailored to their needs and take into account their long-term wealth objectives. Our clients are the cornerstone of Ngwedi and are placed above all else in the pursuit of our vision. We value our client relationships and treat our clients in the way we treat their financial well-being, with due-care, diligence and respect.
WHAT WE OFFER
Ngwedi offers progressive investment solutions that align with our core competencies and the needs of our clients in both the institutional and retail markets. Our product offering comprises a fixed income offering, a multi-asset offering and an equity offering.
Within our fixed income and equity offerings we offer a range of enhanced solutions (bonds, ILBs and equity) which make use of our portable alpha technology and allow our clients predictable out-performance of their chosen market indices.
OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
