M&G Investments Southern Africa (M&G SA) is a large global investment manager with an admirable long-term local track record of helping our clients achieve their investment goals. We uniquely combine the advantages of the group’s wealth of global resources and expertise with our in-depth understanding of local markets and investor needs, with the aim of consistently growing and protecting our clients’ hard-earned savings over time.
Our team is focused on our clients
When we founded our Cape Town office in 1994, one of our key objectives was to help democratise wealth by helping as many people as possible gain access to vital financial services.
Our staff’s wide diversity and strong culture of business ownership and responsibility, built up over the years, have been a rich source of inspiration and company excellence, helping us to retain talented and experienced individuals. We also benefit from a flat management structure and our team approach allows our investment professionals to focus on what they do best - managing clients' savings.
This has ultimately contributed to our consistently strong fund performance and high standards of client service.
We’re very serious about safeguarding our clients’ assets
We’re entrusted with the stewardship of our clients’ assets, a responsibility that we take very seriously. Our reputation as responsible, considered investment professionals is important to us, and we must be above reproach when investing on behalf of our clients.
We are active shareholders with involvement on a number of levels, from directly engaging company management to challenging take-over bids. We also engage other market participants and shareholders, even in cases where we may not necessarily hold the stocks in question.
Working closely with M&G plc gives our clients access to global best investment ideas and solutions that have proven to be successful.
This includes broad global investment themes that South Africans may not have previously been able to access, and cutting-edge, technology-driven solutions.
We’re a responsible participant in financial markets and our communities
We define corporate responsibility as the way our company behaves and how we manage our impact on society and the environment.
