CULTURE AND ETHOS

The founding members share the same work ethic and clear vision for Ngwedi, which is why Ngwedi was created. As we are the custodians of our clients’ future financial well-being, we are required to navigate the financial markets, manage complex processes and focus on return outcomes in an uncertain and evolving environment.  In this market, we believe that interpersonal skills are essential and we pride ourselves on creating an office environment where our staff and clients can communicate openly.
This culture creates a platform where our staff and clients can ask critical questions that underpin the sustainability and efficient functioning of our business. We have created a culture of collaboration, which facilitates an environment where we are able to listen and respond to new ideas amongst us. We actively seek input to gather diverse perspectives to shape our investment strategies in such areas as duration management, yield enhancement and asset allocation.

OWNERSHIP

Owner-managed since its inception, Ngwedi comprises a diverse team of highly skilled financial services professionals, with a shared vision of an empowering economy that is representative of the broader demographics of South Africa. By assuming senior positions in the financial services industry, the leadership of Ngwedi seeks to effect inclusivity and structural change within our economy and our country.
At Ngwedi, we believe in progress, both socially and economically. We also believe that these are far from mutually exclusive and are, in fact, intrinsically linked. That is why we place consistent progression at the heart of everything we do.
