What if investing could be easier? Or what if investing could cost less and offer more predictable returns?

The good news is that by investing with Ecsponent, these what ifs can be replaced with the certainty of predictable returns at the lowest investment cost.

With operations currently in South Africa, Swaziland, Botswana and Zambia, the Ecsponent group generates wealth through investment in financial and private equity assets throughout its targeted markets. The group puts the returns generated by these investments within the reach of investors who seek certainty, transparency, lower fees and above all, above average investment returns.

To make informed investment decisions in times of high volatility and low interest rates is tough. Therefore, when considering an investment portfolio, the three most important considerations are: above-average returns, capital security and liquidity, which are all addressed by our high-quality, low-cost asset management solutions for both institutional and retail investors.

Through a combination of traditional values, investment expertise and progressive thinking, Escponent offers a rare and original approach to wealth creation. Rooted in the philosophy that exceptional investment strategy is all about seizing opportunity, our retail and institutional funds give investors the confidence that we will make their money work for them.

Your small businesses is critical to drive economic growth, create employment and generate innovation in South Africa. Don’t give away equity in your business to finance growth. Let Ecsponent partner with you to grow your business through our innovative funding solutions, even if your business lacks the financial history and security normally required by lending institutions.

We invite any business with a valid purchase order or contract from a credible company, state-owned enterprise, most municipalities and government departments, to apply for finance. Our pioneering funding solutions considers the transactional risk and through this approach has helped many SMMEs with credible transactions and credible counterparties to grow.

The 2015 financial year was another significant milestone for the Ecsponent group. In this year, we raised substantial funding directly from retail investors. A total of R269.4 million was raised from our premium preference share products, which was then deployed to grow the asset base of the group.

During this time:

  • Revenue increased by 178.3%
  • Pre-tax profits grew by 281%
  • Total assets rose to R466.2 million, up 210%
  • Headline earnings and basic earnings respectively increased by 321% and 244%

Africa’s remarkable economic growth during the past decade is evidence enough that the continent holds significant investment prospects. Not to mention the sustainable performance drivers like leadership transformation, favourable demographics and abundant natural resources that further indicate favourable growth prospects.

Ecsponent’s goal is to build an African financial powerhouse.

We believe opportunities exist in a strong demand for infrastructure, and consumer goods and services from Africa’s growing middle class – all which must be supported by a robust financial services sector. Ecsponent is part of Africa’s story of growth and prosperity and have plans for further expansion into Africa in the near future.
