Goal-Based Investment Methodology
- Arcus Capital aims to help clients achieve their investment goals, through portfolio creation that meet pre-specified risk characteristics of individual investors as well as financial counselling explaining to a client what is achievable. For example if a client requires ZAR 1million in ten years’ time but his risk appetite is such that he is unlikely to achieve that, Arcus Capital explains that he needs to increase his time horizon or investment amount or risk appetite to realistically reach this goal.
Advanced Investment Algorithms
- Arcus Capital algorithms are designed to integrate risk premia dynamics to create a portfolio with risk characteristics in line with standard market benchmarks but with allowance for 1-2% p.a. outperformance.
