INVESTING WITH CONSCIENCE

Achieving first-rate investment returns for our clients doesn’t come at the expense of making the change for good. We achieve the best of both. By supporting conservation, education and employment initiatives, we contribute towards a more sustainable future for the environment, communities and wildlife around us, leaving an indelible footprint for future generations.

It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy of optimism and possibility.

We are passionate about preserving our wildlife heritage and uplifting communities. Amplify partners with the Good Work Foundation to teach young people practical skills around hospitality, IT practices and general management. These skills boost their employability in areas that currently suffer from 60% unemployment. Amplify strongly supports community upliftment and environment preservation.

“Amplify is my vision for investors, communities and the environment. With Amplify we can help make South Africa self-sustaining. That’s why the rhino is important to us; it symbolises the ultimate fight for sustainability.”

Marthinus van der Nest, Head of Amplify

EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT

South Africa has an alarmingly high youth unemployment rate, with limited access to quality education and skills training compounding this challenge further. We believe in supporting education initiatives that give our youth access to a better foundation for a brighter future.

LATEST INSIGHTS

INCOME FUNDS vs BOND FUNDS

As you’d expect, the higher duration bond funds carry greater potential for capital gains and losses. Asset allocators, whose clients have a low ability and willingness to take risk, might choose to avoid bond funds on this basis.

DELIVERING CERTAINTY THROUGH CONSISTENCY

To manage an absolute return mandate, the real return objective is the primary goal. “When we construct a portfolio, and when we think of return drivers, we look at how to attain the absolute return with the highest certainty and lowest tail risk, and we tend to veer towards overweight where such a return driver meets the return objective when the distribution of risk around that is acceptable,” says Amplify SCI* Amplify SCI* Defensive Balanced Fund and Amplify SCI* Absolute Fund manager Lourens Pretorius of Matrix Fund Managers.

WEBINAR: DELVERING CERTAINTY THROUGH CONSISTENCY

Volatility across various asset classes has made for a thrilling 2021. Locally we’ve seen a strong rebound in risk assets over the short term leading to high levels of optimism. However, growing wealth or enjoying one’s retirement savings means enduring a longer timeframe so how can one ensure, with certainty, that your investments are working for you regardless of the market cycle or direction?

WEBINAR: VALUE REVIVAL – IS THERE VALUE IN VALUE?

The long-awaited rotation from growth to value has arrived. Many market participants believe it to be a longer-term rebalancing within the equity market due to a massive dislocation between the two styles. However, it begs the question if there is still return potential in the value component of the market, will it be coming out of growth or is it a mix of the two?
