We are an independent, active global asset manager dedicated to delivering compelling outcomes for our clients.
We started in ’91 in South Africa, when change was coming. We learned the importance of recognising and embracing change and uncertainty. It’s taught us that active investing can be a force for good. It’s also given us a different perspective on the issues that matter – from how we invest sustainably, to the major thematic and structural challenges facing investors.
- Hendrik du Toit CEO, Ninety One
