Ninety One

Established in South Africa in 1991, as  an independent, active global asset manager, Ninety One learned the importance of recognising and embracing change and uncertainty.

It’s also given us a different perspective on the issues that matter – from how we invest sustainably, to the major thematic and structural challenges facing investors. Because of its heritage Ninety One knows that active investing can be a force for good.

Today we offer distinctive investment strategies spanning equities, fixed income, multi-asset and alternatives.

Ninety One manages EUR 161.9 billion in assets (as at June 30, 2021) for institutional and private investors across the globe.

With our founding leadership still in place, we are well positioned to offer stability and a long-term outlook.
