Company Info

Global & Local Investment Advisors has been a respected and growing investment advisory firm since 1999.

With over R5 Billion in client assets to manage, in 2017 Global & Local Investment Advisors embarked on a strategy to search for an alternative way of managing assets within the Unit Trust arena.

The challenge was to find something new and exciting, Global & Local has for a long time been proud of our non-traditional approach to advising clients on their assets.

A chance to meet with New York based asset managers New Age Alpha provided the right catalyst for Global & Local Asset Management to be formed and together with New Age Alpha and Salient Quantative Asset Management, we manage capital using leading edge investment management techniques.

Global & Local Asset Management has featured on Kaya FM, Classic FM and Mix FM where their team of experts has provided investment insight as well as answer listener questions.
