How we invest

STANLIB partners with experts in their fields.

Global Bonds

Managed by Brandywine Global Investment Management.

Brandywine has significant expertise and a proven track record in bond markets. They manage over $70 billion in global assets and have managed STANLIB’s global bond portfolios since inception.

Brandywine has over 30 years’ experience managing global bonds. The firm’s headquarters are in Philadelphia, with offices in London, Singapore, San Francisco, Toronto and Montreal.

Brandywine is a pioneer of unconstrained investing and takes a differentiated approach to global bond selection. Portfolio managers use a top-down, bottom-up, macro-driven, value-oriented approach to portfolio construction.

The team believes global bond benchmarks are flawed due to their construction methodology, resulting in opportunities for investors.

Global Equity and Multi-Asset

Managed by Columbia Threadneedle.

Our partner, Columbia Threadneedle, is the asset management arm of Fortune 500 company, Ameriprise Financial.

Columbia Threadneedle employs over 2 000 professionals across the globe and manages over $400 billion in assets.  They have a proven track record in global equity and multi-asset investing and are dedicated to generating outperformance for investors.

The portfolio management teams at Columbia Threadneedle aim to deliver competitive, repeatable risk-adjusted returns by taking an active approach to asset management. Portfolio managers apply a quality and growth style strategy, which has produced highly successful results since inception.

Using a combination of macro and micro insights, the team appropriately and carefully allocates risk to deliver outperformance.

Columbia Threadneedle’s process is team-based and performance-driven.

Global Property

Managed by STANLIB Listed Property. 

We believe markets are at times inefficient and stock prices do not always reflect all available information. We believe we can use our experience, resources, and expertise to select stocks that will outperform.

We focus on stocks that will provide high and sustainable income and capital growth over time. We ensure our portfolios are well diversified by choosing stocks across different sectors, such as office, industrial and retail space as well as those exposed to different geographies.

Our focus on fundamental analysis means we are not shy to take contrarian views and our portfolios may look different from prevailing market trends and sentiment.
