IMVUSELELO's Investment Philosophy and Strategy
IMVUSELELO's investment strategy upon inception was primarily focused on merely "trading" equities. However, we have since matured into a multi-strategy, multi-disciplinary, investment management firm emphasizing meticulous research, precise analogy and risk management practices.
Our investment strategies include, but are not limited to the following:
- Fundamental and Technical Equity Portfolios
- Derivatives – Commodity futures (The commodities that we specialise in are Nymex and Brent Crude. Derivatives offer us the ability to capitalize on arbitrage and contango opportunities that the oil market avails. We are able to take long or short positions depending on the direction of the market)
- Global Quantitative Strategies, Valuation/assessment solutions.
- Global Macro Strategies as well as Emerging Markets.
Our "foot to head" method of capturing specific information on an asset or company enables us to collect a wide spectrum of data that allows us to greatly reduce over-reliance on any single item of data and a small number of variables that would only serve to increase the margin of error throughout our decision making processes.
Imvuselelo is a global firm dedicated to value and wealth creation for its investors and shareholders, through the calculated pursuit and exploitation of comparatively priced assets with exponential growth potential.
In addition to this, our other major objective to ultimately evolve and grow into a self-financing business aspiring to be a significant fund manager, quantitative finance consulting and advisory institution devoted to the development of the South African economy.
