Since launching our range of Payers & Growers® investment strategies in early March 2012, the team at Grindrod Asset Management have been exceedingly focussed in two key areas.  First, our investment professionals have been constructing and managing a series of differentiated portfolios that deliver regular and growing income streams to our investors.  Secondly, our distribution team has spent an enormous amount of time and energy educating the advisory market around the techniques and benefits of utilising these unique investment strategies for both their pre- and post-retirement clients.  Not only have we been fortunate enough to secure the support of a significant number of retail investment advisors and direct investors over this time, but we have also started to see the larger retirement funds and institutional clients allocating money to our various fund strategies.

Importantly our efforts are starting to yield some measurable results for investors. The Payers & Growers® portfolios have delivered amongst the highest income yields in their respective peer groups, and have also shown consistent year-on-year growth in their distributable incomes over this time.  These dual-portfolio attributes are rare in the market and have led to our funds delivering excellent performance results for our clients and their advisors.  The number of clients and advisors supporting our business has grown by over 150% in the last 3 years. We expect this trend to continue as more and more investors begin to understand the mechanics and various applications of our Payers & Growers® funds within their broader investment portfolios.

Monday, 14th September 2015 was a very special day for our business.  Not only did we cross the R1 billion in gross flows level into our Payers & Growers® strategies since the funds achieved their 3 year track records on 28th February 2015, but we also achieved the milestone of exceeding R1 billion in gross flows for the calendar year-to-date.  Our two flagship strategies, the Grindrod Stable Growth Fund and the Grindrod Managed Growth Fund also exceeded the R1 billion of combined assets threshold, and the listed property portfolio that we manage on behalf of Nedgroup Investments broke through the R2 billion in assets under management mark.

We have a simple goal; to consistently grow the income and capital of clients in a highly cost effective manner and thereby build a trusted brand with loyal supporters. We are very grateful for the support that retirement fund trustees, financial advisors and ordinary South Africans have given us to date.  We will remain dedicated to our goal and look forward to continued shared success in the future.
