Arcus Capital

Sophisticated wealth management for everyone. We help you meet your financial goals by using advanced technology while saving you up to 400% on fees.

Arcus Capital has created a robo advisor with advanced investment algorithms that trawl the market and analyse them using big data. This analysis is tied in directly to our risk algorithms so that investors are matched with portfolios that meet their risk appetite and financial goals. An intuitive app is available guides the investor through this journey in a graphical way.

We work together with financial companies to white label and custom design a solution that fits their business.

Capitalisation on Technology

  • Robo advisors are able to successfully leverage the power and widespread use of social media, smartphones, tablets, apps and next generation technology to provide superior investment advise to technology savvy investors.
  • In today’s world of increased automation, democratisation of technology and shifting consumer behaviour and demands, the impact and future adoption of robo advisors cannot be ignored.

Better User Experience for Clients

  • Robo advisors have excelled in providing state-of-the-art technology, investment tools and user interfaces that provide convenience, real-time transparency and liquidity to clients
  • Compared to traditional investment advisors’ products, robo advisors offer Sophisticated and robust smartphone and tablet apps, algorithm-driven online platforms with detailed and easily accessible investment data sets and portfolio performance information.

Straight Through Processing

  • Robo advisors’ streamlined and automated application and onboarding process enables clients to open an account, fund it and begin investing in as little as 30 minutes compared to the typical weeklong account opening process of traditional investment advisors.
  • Brief automated online or mobile phone application that asks users tangible, straight-forward and easy to understand questions about financial goals, risk tolerance and investment horizon.

General Shift Amongst Consumers

  • Robo advisors offer an advanced and differentiated financial platform for underserved, tech-savvy Millennials, the emerging middle class and “high earning, not rich yet” or HENRYs which have been historically underserved by the traditional wealth management community.
  • Growing demographic that has embraced modern technology and integrated automation and tech into their unique buying and consumer habits (e.g. culture of convenience, accessibility via apps).

Advanced and Efficient Investing

  • Robo advisors offer highly calibrated investment algorithms which achieve optimal returns at various levels of risk through diversification, automated and efficient rebalancing, tax loss harvesting and advanced cash management.

Long Standing Industry Experience

  • Both in London and South Africa

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.

    Lorien Gamaroff, CEO Bankymoon

    Schalk Nolte, Founder Entersekt

  • Slide is now well on the way to causing significant disruption in the South African fintech sector. We would not have been able to break into the South African market so rapidly without the help provided by AlphaCode.

    Alon Stern, Founder Slide

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in providing a platform for us to access industry thought leaders, networks, working space, coaching and ultimately the opportunity to pitch to global multi-nationals and secure funding that very few startups get to land in their first year.

    Priya Mistry, Founder CommuScore
