Our Investment Philosophy

We focus on investing in African companies with unique high quality assets, brands and/or business footprints that can withstand economic cycles. Our view is that such businesses will generate superior returns over the long term.

The investment philosophy is driven by the investment objectives of Invictus.

We aim to provide shareholders/investors with attractive investment returns through access to a steady stream of fully franked dividends and medium to long term capital growth. In this regard our primary goals are:

To pay dividends which, over time, grow faster than the rate of inflation
To provide attractive total returns over the medium to long term.

Our investment philosophy has the following core principles

Sound returns with lower variability

By combining the benefits of investment in quality companies with those of diversification, the investment process seeks to produce attractive returns with lower volatility.

Buy and hold investment style over the long term

Our investment style is to buy shares in listed companies and hold them for the medium to long term. This approach minimises dealing costs and has historically provided investors with sound, tax-efficient, long term returns. 

Investment committee participation

The participation of the Investment Committee is a key component of the Investment Process. This allows for wide ranging perspectives on current and potential investments utilising the business expertise of Directors, the Company’s Investment professionals and senior management team.

Use of trading portfolio

We operate a trading portfolio to generate additional income by taking advantage of shorter term opportunities in the market. The objective therefore is to buy with the intent of resale at a profit. This may include utilising selective option strategies approved by the Investment Committee. The Trading Portfolio is maintained within limits set by the Board and can be no greater than 10% of the total portfolio.

Portfolio diversification

Invictus Investments Limited seeks to reduce investment risk by diversifying its investments across a range of companies and industries, thereby ensuring that the portfolio is not overly exposed to one company or one particular sector of the market.  While the Company has not set specific minimum or maximum levels of the portfolio that can be invested in a single company or sector, the weightings of individual securities and market sectors are regularly reviewed by the Investment Committee.
