CoreShares is one of Africa’s leading passive investment management businesses. We specialise in index-tracking investment solutions across Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), Unit Trusts and segregated mandates (for institutions).
In a market known for over-charging and under-delivering, CoreShares has taken a stand against the prevailing investment practices and is perfecting a passive, low-cost investment approach based on evidence.
We’re a contemporary, independent investment manager. We focus on passive investment principles and processes – investment strategies wrapped up in an index or rules-based form.
CoreShares offers these products and services at very competitive fees.
Evidenced-Based Investment (EBI) Philosophy
Evidence-Based Investing is essentially about basing investment decisions on peer-reviewed, time-tested, academic evidence. By applying scientific methods and behavioral economics to investing, biases and gut feelings are replaced with intellectual rigour.
At CoreShares we harness the evidence underpinning:
- Asset class returns over time
- Importance of keeping costs low
- Importance of diversification
- Existence of factors or risk premia which exist particularly in the equity market.
We believe that an EBI process drives more predictable outcome for clients.
