    A brief introduction to M&G Investments

    M&G Investments has a clear objective: we help our clients achieve financial security. To do this we aim to deliver excellent investment returns on clients’ savings that are under our stewardship, through an unwavering focus on our investment process and performance outcomes.

    We put our clients first. We explicitly avoid the proliferation of our investment solutions in order to maintain our singular investment focus, and won’t hesitate to cap a fund should we believe its size impairs our ability to deliver top client returns.

    In addition to delivering excellent investment returns, we aim to provide exceptional client service that is ethical, professional and supports our brand promise of “consistency”.


    Our people

    In support of our primary objective, we foster and reward a culture of excellence.  We employ people who are not only highly skilled, but also passionate about our industry and investment markets in general.  We value diverse, independent thinking and self-motivated people who enjoy working in a collaborative team-based culture.  We aim to treat employees with dignity and fairness, and to provide a stimulating work environment. 

    Our employees’ interests are aligned with those of clients: significant portions of our own savings are invested alongside clients in our portfolios.  All employees are also indirect shareholders in M&G Investments, which ensures that we act in the long-term best interest of all our stakeholders. 

    As a South African-based business that is part of a much larger global investment manager, we acknowledge our role in contributing to the transformation of our society, and growing an inclusive and vibrant economy to the benefit of all the people of our amazing country. We are proud to have achieved a Level 1 B-BBEE rating, as one of our top business priorities.

    Our Investment Analyst Graduate Programme

    The M&G Investment Analyst Graduate Programme is designed to provide aspiring investment professionals with direct, hands-on exposure to the investment management profession. Starting in February 2024, the two-year rotational programme offers the opportunity to gain insights into the investments industry within a global asset manager.

    Successful candidates will be immersed in many different functional areas within the investments team: Equity, Fixed Income, Multi-Asset, Quantitative Analysis and Equity Dealing, as well as other functions within the business. It provides an opportunity to network and learn from our experienced and collaborative investment team with over 400 years of cumulative experience.

    While most of the learning on this programme is on-the-job training, certain components entail structured learning. We strongly encourage graduates to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst qualification with the CFA Institute, and to facilitate this, we will provide funding and study leave during the programme. 


    Our offices

    We've recently redesigned our offices with a specific objective in mind, to create a beautiful work environment that enhances collaboration and promotes employee wellbeing.

    To achieve this objective we partnered with one of the country’s leading specialists in interior architecture and commercial design. Every aspect of our design was meticulously thought through, from the décor to the material, every feature was carefully chosen based on form and quality. The result of this collaborative effort is an office space that provides the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics.

    Our staff remain our most important asset, which is why we have gone to such great lengths to ensure an optimal working environment for all to experience. We have allocated two floors of ‘working’ space, comprising of open-plan areas, offices, meeting rooms, quiet/private spaces and pause areas for relaxation. We also have a floor dedicated to our clients, which boasts state-of-the art meeting room facilities and a lounge area.

    We truly believe that we have created a space that encourages creativity and productivity; one of many reasons that make M&G Investments a great place to work.
