Should financial advisors use a DFM?

There is no one-size-fits-all definition that applies to all DFMs. It depends on the value proposition that a DFM has.

How advisors are benefitting from partnering with a DFM

A growing number of financial advisors in South Africa are starting to use discretionary fund managers to help them manage their clients’ funds in the complex world of fund management, says Methula Sikakana, Business Development Manager, Equilibrium

How we approach investments and the rationale for using a DFM

As an advisor, I believe that my role is not to avoid risk, but rather to understand the relationship between risk and reward and to manage risk(s) appropriately, relative to the objectives of the portfolio.

Choosing a Discretionary Fund Manager

A partnership with a DFM not only saves the advisor an enormous amount of time, but also ensures that all the investment considerations are met, says Florbela Yates, Head of Equilibrium
