Solutions that help you combine the best of all worlds – locally and abroad. 

An ocean of global opportunities

The case for offshore investing remains a strong one if one considers its contribution to portfolio diversification and hedging the weakness of local currency. Also, in simple terms, the global investible universe provides opportunities that are just not available in the local market – opportunities to benefit from emerging industries such as nanotechnology, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), to name just a few. Suffice to say, there is a long list of industries not sufficiently represented in our local market.

Not only is the local investment opportunity limited in terms of size and growth, but the instruments we use to access this growth – listed equities – have declined significantly since 2000, down from roughly 600 on the JSE to just under 300, currently.

We’ve taken the heavy lifting out of offshore portfolio design.

Given the size and depth of the offshore investible universe, choosing funds and designing portfolios can be daunting. At Glacier International, we are mindful of this and have designed tools and processes to help you make the best decisions with your clients’ needs and objectives at the centre.
