To help you make the best investment decisions, the top asset managers from Symmetry Multi-Manager Investments can help you to invest your money wisely. Symmetry Multi-Manager Investments are one of 16 specialist investment providers within the Old Mutual Group. This means that Symmetry Multi-Manager is governed by the stability and reassurance associated with Old Mutual, but is a separate entity able to operate with individual autonomy. Symmetry Multi-Manager was established in 2000. Since then, the company’s assets under management have shown significant growth, over the R40 billion mark.
In South Africa, there are more unit trusts (nearly 1000) than there are shares on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. This makes the South African stock and investment environment a complex one. It is the role of Symmetry Multi-Manager to make this confusing environment more accessible by offering a range of funds to suit any types of investor.
What does Symmetry Multi-Manager do?
Rather than placing investment in individual shares, the top asset managers at Symmetry Multi-Manager make the best investment choices for their relevant clients, meaning that clients get the benefit of having multiple asset managers making the right decisions for them. It is up to Symmetry Multi-Manager to conduct extensive research into the individual strengths, performance, philosophy and strategy of asset managers. Symmetry Multi-Manager investments therefore carry lower risk than other investment options.
What funds are offered by Symmetry Multi-Manager?
There are two categories of fund available to individuals: Life Funds and Unit Trusts. Both of these types of investments are suitable across the risk spectrum but there are minor differences between the two so it is worth contacting a financial adviser to see which option is best suited to your circumstances.
