We are client-focussed and service-focussed – we believe we are in partnership with our clients. What this means in practice is that you interact with individuals – to whom you can attach a face and a name – as opposed to talking to a different call centre agent every time. In fact, personal, long-term relationships is the foundation of our service and commitment to you.
As a boutique manager, we manage less money than most of our competitors. This means we have access to a bigger investment universe, as investing in small and mid-cap shares adds a lot more value to our smaller funds than it would do to a much larger fund. It also gives us more flexibility to act on favourable investment opportunities as they arise, to the benefit of your investment outcomes.
Since the owners of Truffle are involved in the daily management of the business, you can have peace of mind that there is no outside interference by external shareholders in our investment approach and decisions. We can remain focussed on what we believe will deliver the best investment outcomes. This is another way in which we can give you the confidence that our interests are aligned with yours. Strategic decisions are made by the people involved in the daily management of the business, timeously and efficiently.
As shareholders and co-investors in the business, our interests are aligned with those of our clients. This means we are personally committed to the long-term success and sustainability of our business and your investments. No personal account trading is allowed, and all staff invest alongside our clients.
The value of our team’s experience is evidenced by their track record of finding investments that consistently deliver optimal returns for our clients, at a competitive fee. We received independent recognition for this when we were ranked as one of South Africa’s top three fund houses with a smaller fund range in the 2017 Morningstar Fund Awards. More recently, Truffle has won a total of 4 Raging Bull awards for top straight performance over 3 years (in 2019 and 2020).
Our highly experienced team of investment professionals have core capabilities in the full spectrum of investment products that we offer. In addition, most of our team members have gained experience through numerous economic and business cycles. This experience enables us to assess the reasonability of our assumptions when we make investment decisions, leading to better investment outcomes and sound risk management.
