Our Story

Since its inception in August 2003, the RealFin Group has earned a widely acknowledged reputation as a leader in specialist asset management, advisory and structured financial solutions to the institutional market (pension funds, life companies, asset managers and stock brokers). The Group currently controls assets in excess of USD1.7bn.

In order to provide South African private clients direct access to multiple asset classes on a global and unhindered basis, a strategic decision was taken to extend our specialist asset management service to include global discretionary asset management to the private client market. RealCap was therefore founded in 2012 under the umbrella of the RealFin Group.

Although based in Cape Town, South Africa, our offering is global. Through our counterparties in Switzerland and Denmark, RealCap offers specialist, global investment management services to our sophisticated investors with a focus on sectors and countries where we believe our unique skill set provides us with positive information asymmetry. We also offer confidential and personalised Multi-Family Office services to assist our South African investor families in making informed and educated decisions that will best suit present as well as future family generations.

Transparency and security form the foundation of RealCap and together with a driven, passionate and committed team of people who are obsessed with providing excellent client service, we are able to offer our investors a truly unique investment management service.
