In collaboration with SMM (Sanlam Multi Manager), Glacier offers an independent consulting service with dedicated investment professionals who assist intermediaries in the creation, implementation and reporting of wrap funds, ensuring that our partners can cater for the investment objectives and needs of a diverse client base.
Meticulous research. Insights you can trust
The research we do is aimed at facilitating informed investment decisions. The Glacier research team undertakes meticulous fund research, provides independent, objective investment insights, tools and support, and conducts regular regional visits to intermediaries.
Glacier’s experts regularly issue a number of useful publications to our intermediaries. The most noteworthy is The Shopping List – a premier guide to the top collective investment funds, put together by the Glacier research team on a quarterly basis with the aim to assist intermediaries in making appropriate investment decisions for their clients.
Other publications include the Bull and Bear Report – a consensus view of the market over the following 12 months, the Economic Report – a review of the markets over the preceding month, the Weekly Comment – a weekly review of local and international markets, Funds on Friday – an interesting read featuring different authors from the entire industry, and Daily Market Watch, which is published on Twitter and which provides an overview of the previous day’s market movements and the explanations behind them.
We also send out intermediary-focused newsletters on a monthly and quarterly basis.
