Malcolm Holmes has 11 years investment experience and has been a portfolio manager in his own right, which makes him the perfect candidate to oversee the evaluation of the underlying managers and their portfolios. As the head portfolio manager, Malcolm is the key person responsible for product development and design at STANLIB Multi-Manager. He is responsible for ensuring that our products meet their investment objectives and that the underlying managers meet their mandates.
STANLIB Multi-Manager was established in 1999 and is the centre of excellence for multi-managed solutions within STANLIB. The investment team, led by Chief Investment Officer Joao Frasco, consists of an experienced team with a diverse set of investment skills. We have offices in Johannesburg and London, and currently have mandates in excess of R90 billion under stewardship.
STANLIB Multi-Manager Funds are designed to deliver superior investment returns more consistently than through a single asset manager or mandate. Our approach allows investors to outsource the fund / manager selection decision, which includes the ongoing due diligence of managers and construction of portfolios, to meet pre-defined objectives over time.
Risk management is a fundamental component of our investment philosophy and process and is therefore approached holistically. It permeates every part of our investment process, requiring participation and accountability from all individuals involved in the process.
