Investing since 1994

And still growing strong

At Aurum we aim to take intelligent risk to provide resilient risk-adjusted returns over the long-term and across multiple economic
and financial cycles. We place a high priority on capital preservation.

Applying our investment philosophy means that there are strategies and investment approaches that are deliberately excluded. These include being long-biased to the market and being reliant on carry or yield to enhance results.

By excluding investments correlated to the market, our portfolios provide a more consistent return stream with a high proportion of positive months. Our investment solutions complement a traditional portfolio of bonds and equities and have proven that an investment with Aurum can help to grow and protect our clients’ portfolios.

Coming into the game, South Africa were written off by the press as underdogs, criticised for their supposed unattractive style of rugby and barely given a chance.
