Our core focus is our advisory business. However we own equity stakes in two strategic partner businesses. Both offer specialised investment management services - one to an institutional client base and the other to HNW individuals and family office clients.
Our business partners, and how we work with them:

GraySwan currently advise more than ZAR20 billion in assets and their clients are top performers in the industry.

Quartet Investment Management
Quartet was founded in 2009, offering investment management services to high net worth private clients. Central to Quartet's investment philosophy is asset allocation. They focus their efforts on actively managing the strategic and tactical asset allocation of portfolios and adopt a ‘top down’ approach to their investments. All portfolios are bespoke to the individual client, and they have no in-house products and are not tied to any product providers, thus maintaining their independence and objectivity. Niels Jensen is the CIO of Quartet. For more information, please visit www.quartet-im.com
Kinnerton Credit Management
Kinnerton Credit Management (previously Halkin ARP Capital) was established in 2011 as a partnership between Absolute Return Partners and Jens Bisgaard-Frantzen, a Danish national with more than 25 years of experience in financial markets. Kinnerton is a Copenhagen based, partner owned firm specialising in credit opportunities arising from the entrenchment of banks following regulation change post-crisis. Kinnerton operates in the area where banks cannot, lendings to address the supply demand imbalance in credit markets. The firm focuses on the downside – as the upside tends to take care of itself. Its first fund launched in 2011 as a €135m Irish Stock Exchange listed vehicle that provides alternative financing to home owners in Denmark. In 2013 Kinnerton launched a second fund focussed on opportunistic credit; a third fund launched in 2015, the fourth and fifth launched in 2018. Kinnerton’s client base is 100% institutional. AUM is €500m. For more information please visit www.kinnertoncredit.com
