REACHING BEYOND FINANCIAL RETURNS
ADDRESSING INEQUALITY THROUGH A SUSTAINABLE INVESTMENT MODEL.
At Gap Capital, we are driven by a clear vision – to be the investment managers of choice for the betterment of South Africa. Gap Capital is a unique investment firm. We invest in businesses that deliver strong and consistent earnings for our investors and our philanthropic partners.
Central to our investment philosophy is identifying great businesses who understand their market, invest in their people and have the ability to deliver quality earnings and sustainable growth. Such businesses understand that people, products and service are the drivers creating business value and goodwill.
WHAT SETS US APART
BUILDING YOUR WEALTH. BUILDING YOUR NATION.
Our uniqueness as fund managers is that whilst we invest in great businesses and add value to our investments, we simultaneously generate capital for the betterment of South Africa, through our trust, The Light Trust. Capital is a powerful vehicle for change.
We partner with our investors to not only grow their wealth, but to leave a legacy through providing a sustainable philanthropic solution.
We believe the single most important issue facing South Africa today is the high level of inequality, trapping individuals and communities in a cycle of poverty and preventing this country from achieving its full potential. Inspired by their biblical beliefs, the Gap Capital team are motivated to be part of the solution by providing a mechanism for investors to participate in this process of change through investment. Applying proven investment strategies, we generate financial and social returns for our investors, whilst at the same time addressing inequalities in a long term sustainable manner.
