Laurium Capital is an independent asset manager founded in 2008 by Murray Winckler, former CEO and head of research at Deutsche Bank South Africa, and long-time colleague Gavin Vorwerg, who was Deutsche's deputy head of research. Murray and Gavin are the co-managers on the fund.
The fund is actively managed and invests in South African listed equities, predominantly but not limited to the top 100 stocks. The mandate is not restricted to any specific investment style and the investment strategy is underpinned by extensive bottom-up fundamental research and valuations. The focus is predominantly on individual stock selection to create a concentrated portfolio; however, macro-economic considerations will also play an integral part in constructing the portfolio.
The fund is available as both a unit trust and a tax free investment.
