WHY THE NAME WEAVER?
The Weaver bird is one of the prominent bird species prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa. It is known for its skill, tenacity and ingenuity in nest building – the most elaborate of nest builders. The nest building process is well thought out and executed. The Weaver bird could be described as an architect, construction engineer and site foreman all rolled into one.
Weaver Investment Management identifies with these characteristics and we emulate them in the way we advise clients, build portfolios and protect wealth. We offer an end-to-end investment advisory and implementation solution.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We aim to be a truly empowered, credible and sustainable financial services business that consistently delivers on clients’ investment objectives through disciplined and robust implementation of investment strategies.
We build rewarding relationships with all our stakeholders encompassing clients, business partners, shareholders and regulators.
We assist trustees and investment management committee members in discharging their fiduciary responsibilities in relation to the administration, governance and investment of assets.
We are totally independent as we do not have any outside shareholding by asset managers, insurers, administrators or brokers. This enables us to provide advice that is untainted and free from conflict of interest. Our independence affords us the flexibility to select the best service providers enabling us to offer our clients appropriate solutions.
Our advice will always be guided by our desire to provide cost effective solutions that offer the highest probability of success at the lowest possible risk.
OUR VALUE PROPOSITION
We keep costs to a minimum by blending passive with active solutions in our portfolios. This is in line with Retirement Fund Reform proposals from National Treasury.
We blend black asset managers with traditional managers in all local asset class building blocks.
Weaver is not owned by any of the large insurance companies, banks or asset managers. This enables us to offer unbiased advice to our clients.
