LEGACY AFRICA Fund Managers (Proprietary) Limited was founded in 2012 with South Africa’s Companies and Intellectual Property Commission. LEGACY AFRICA was subsequently registered and approved as a Financial Services Provider in August 2013 with South Africa’s then Financial Services Board (currently Financial Sector Conduct Authority).
LEGACY AFRICA was conceived to be a form of an investment platform. The context being that (prospective) specialist product managers / fund managers would plug into this built platform of shared support services and distribution. This will enable them to prosper by focusing on alpha generation, thus building a large integrated asset management firm from the bottom up.
The current investment offering is in listed – South Africa equities, Africa ex SA equities; listed South Africa Fixed Income, Balanced Funds, Absolute Return Funds (76% subsidiary under LEGACY AFRICA Multi Strategies); and South Africa Private Equity (60% subsidiary under LEGACY AFRICA Capital Partners). In effect, the firms are 100% employee owned.
Legacy Africa strives to be the most preferred investment manager for long term savings in Africa.
We aim to consistently deliver value to our clients through long-term competitive returns and superior service.
