Wealthport investment platform receives two awards at SRP Africa Conference

Structured Retail Products (SRP’s) Africa Structured Products and Derivatives Awards, which forms part of the 3rd SRP Africa Conference, has once again named Wealthport, a growing wealth and investment management platform in South Africa, as award winners for 2019.

Wealthport received two awards within the Service Provider Awards category, at the event held in Cape Town on the 07th March 2019; Best Linked Investment Service Provider (LISP) platform, and Best Technology Platform.

This is the second time Wealthport has achieved these accolades, having first received these awards in 2017.

Eugene Maree, founder and group CEO, at Wealthport says; “We are absolutely thrilled and proud to once again be recognised by SRP Africa. We believe that this acknowledgment comes off the back of continual hard work and our commitment to re-shaping the traditional investment model.”

The SRP Africa Conference, brings together over 100 senior-level senior representatives from both the local and international investment industry, to network and debate opportunities and challenges that are impacting and shaping the future of the alternative investments space in Africa.

The Awards, which form a crucial part of the conference, are considered to be the most prestigious honour within the industry, aimed at acknowledging best buy-side firms along with classifying service providers who are active in the structured products and derivatives market. Key criteria for the Best LISP Platform award include technology innovation, post-trade service, breath of coverage and user interface.

For the Best Technology Platform, key criteria examined comprised of pricing capacity, risk model capacity, user interface and integration. “These awards support our focus to provide leadership and technical innovation within the investment space. Our team of experts are passionate about offering new solutions and improved technology platforms, which we know will positively impact the investment sector for current and future needs. My gratitude must also be extended to our full team for their dedication to excellence, which I have no doubt played a massive role in this achievement.”

“We are a business who strongly believes in the power of a simple proposition – without the clutter of complicated business rules and seemingly endless choices. Instilling such a belief holds us accountable to ensure that we focus on what really matters when it comes to investment products – to provide only the highest quality solutions and support to our clients and advisors. For us, these awards reinforce this, our business model and encourages us to keep this focus for future business growth and success in the investment sector,” concludes Maree.
