As a South African investor, you have access to FSB regulated boutique asset managers, which also include hedge funds and cost effective CIS structures. These award winning portfolios rely on carefully selected boutique asset managers who contribute to a range of diversified investment strategies (Long-Short Equity, Long Only Equity, Fixed Income and Multi Asset).
Highly experienced teams manage an optimal blend of uncorrelated strategies, maximising risk-adjusted returns and reducing poor individual investment decisions. In turn they are each overseen by a regulated institution whose focus is low-volatility and efficient fund structures. This doesn’t necessarily suggest layers of unwarranted fees, as it does layers of insurance.
Allocations to strategies constantly change as macro-economic sentiment ebbs and flows. These internal redemptions become very costly over time and our preferred structures address this issue, reducing your overall portfolio costs. BLACK ONYX represents investment managers who will reduce your investment costs.
