DSFin Services is a performance-driven house with a philosophy to create long-term wealth for all our clients. The DSFin Services solution philosophy focuses fundamentally on value investments, opportunities that will provide consistent long-term results and investment markets that are semi-efficient, consequently exploiting the occurrence of inefficiencies in the market as a part of the investment process.
As a financial management business who offers boutique solutions, is our people our greatest asset. We believe in and nurture a culture of teamwork and excellence, of people that share our solution philosophy and subscribe to our values and principles.
DSFin Services employs a well-thought-through solutions process, which presupposes that a solution can only be made after a thorough analysis of the risk and return potential has been completed. From the above-mentioned analysis, a detailed risk profile is compiled for every investment which comprises a comprehensive description of investment return potential, risk and the term of the investment.
Risk management forms the central focus of our portfolio management strategy. The fund management process starts with an acceptable risk budget, which is strictly adhere to. The portfolio manager aims to obtain the maximum return per unit of risk exploiting inefficiencies in the market behaviour of specific assets. The investment process is driven by macro and bottom-up views that are consolidated to drive asset allocation. Asset selection is also done from a bottom-up and macro point of view.
In conclusion, the investment process focuses on the management of investment risk and follows a conservative view in that the minimum risk, as prescribed by the mandate, is adhered to. We only deviate from this policy upon the client’s insistence.
