Becoming Ninety One
Investing for a world of change
We’re experiencing an unprecedented situation. Incredible changes are happening and the challenges we face are daunting.
They’re forcing us to adapt and rethink. But they are also pulling us together. By working closer as communities and businesses we will restore our well-being and our economy.
Since 1991 we’ve been helping our clients deal with change. Our approach is to tackle it head on and that’s what we’re doing now.
So with everything that’s happening today and whatever comes next, we’ll pull together, seeking the best way through for everyone.
Investments involve risk; losses may be made.
Change makes us adapt
As active managers, we are committed to the benefits of specialisation, believing that great investments come from bold and well-tested ideas. Being active drives our intent and how we adapt to a world of change. It enables us to think long term, providing space to be patient and the chance to invest in a better future.
Change makes us inventive
Every person’s freedom to create is a defining element of the philosophy that drives our strong culture. We strive to give people the freedom to express their strengths, skills and talents. Freedom to create is a crucial driver of diversity in our business.
Change makes us determined
In 2013, Ninety One established the Tusk Conservation Awards in partnership with Tusk Trust. These awards celebrate the achievements of the extraordinary people whose work protecting Africa’s irreplaceable natural heritage might otherwise go unnoticed. Conservation in Africa is close to our heart, and our support of Tusk and these awards invigorates our determination to support conservation.
Change makes us resilient
When we started our firm in ’91, it was our founding belief that active management can be a force for good; that when change comes, good or bad, by being active we seek out the best opportunities for our clients and their investments. We are an independent and global asset manager, dedicated to actively delivering compelling outcomes for our clients.
