Alexander Forbes follows an advice-led approach to ensure that our clients have the right solutions which will provide them with measurable benefits across Africa.
As an investment survey provider and the custodian of one of the most respected and widely read surveys in Africa, Alexander Forbes is committed to ensuring that users are given reliable and appropriate information to enable like-for-like performance comparisons. These surveys are therefore constantly reassessed and enhanced as new investment instruments and strategies which drive performance emerge, keeping pace with analytical and technological advances relating to performance attribution.
The Alexander Forbes Manager Watch™ surveys are performance surveys that showcase the performance and risk statistics of institutional fund managers in South Africa and have been published since 1994. Alexander Forbes is the only investment survey provider that publishes a survey for all the major asset classes in South Africa. Performance surveys are published monthly, quarterly, bi-annually and annually. The Alexander Forbes performance surveys continue to evolve to cater for diversity within its market-related industry. The Shari’ah Manager Watch™ survey was introduced in the third quarter of 2018, while the new Alexander Forbes Africa Equity survey will be launched later this year.
