Nedgroup Investments is based in London, and runs the in-house investment solutions offered by Nedbank and Nedbank Private Wealth.
They run an historically successful series of portfolios with international investors in South Africa, Europe, the Middle East and South-East Asia in mind.
Their portfolios are widely available across many platforms via their unitised portfolios at values as low as £1,000, or accessible as a more traditional DFM service via Nedbank’s Focus account for sums of £500,000+.
Run by Andrew Yeadon, the focus is on reducing downside risk for investors utilising leverage in their portfolio, which is reflected in the generally cautious approach and low volatility evident across their range of multi-currency, risk rated solutions.
Andrew joined Nedgroup Investments in 2012 following 11 years with Schroders Investment Management. During his time at Schroders, he formed their Multi-Manager Team which saw the GBP130m of seed capital provided in 2003 grow to GBP1.6bn by 2011.
At Nedgroup Investments, Andrew is Chairman of both the International StratCom and the Global Investment Committee, and a member of the Board of Directors of Nedgroup Investment Advisors (UK) Limited.
Their range comprises of three multi different multi asset funds, one global equity fund, one global property fund, and three multi manager funds.
A variety of share classes are offered.
Where possible, costs are lowered through the use of ETF’s, and the manager looks to add value via their strategic asset allocation and in-house research across equity, bond, property and alternative asset classes.
Fund fees range from just over 0.5% to 2.17% depending on what share class is purchased.
Nedgroup Investments focus on capital and wealth preservation and deliver consistent performance.
For investors looking for a more traditional aggressive or high growth approach, Nedgroup may not suit given their more cautious approach and focus on wealth preservation.
