About us

Launched in 2001, NFB Asset Management is one of South Africa’s leading independent providers of local and offshore single manager as well as local and offshore multi-manager portfolios.

With NFB Asset Management, investors benefit from dynamic asset allocation, considered fund selection, optimal portfolio construction and transparent reporting expertise. 

A sophisticated investment offering


Our solid return record combined with a reputation for business integrity and research excellence have contributed to our significant growth and success. With more than R4.5 billion in assets under management, we offer a sophisticated suite of portfolios and resources to suit the dynamic needs of today’s discerning investor.

Using a unique investment philosophy


Backed by the armoury of the broader Group and three decades of industry experience, our distinctive investment philosophy is grounded in a deep knowledge base and a rigorous research process. At our core, we are long-term investors who believe in making active decisions at the asset allocation level and implementing those decisions using passive instruments in our single manager portfolios. We then use our fund selection and portfolio construction expertise to combine single manager portfolios into multi-manager solutions.

Underpinned by a disciplined approach


We do not believe in forecasting, back testing or optimisation. We use our meaningful industry insights and a strict risk management framework to actively identify opportunities or threats in prevailing financial market conditions, with the aim of helping investors meet their strategic objectives over time. Our disciplined investment approach ultimately reconciles a rigorous due diligence process with dynamic asset allocation to provide investors with long-term capital appreciation.
