Marriott was acquired by Old Mutual in 2005 and now forms part of the Old Mutual Investment Group as an independent boutique.
Marriott aims to create financial peace of mind through predictable investment outcomes by applying an Income Focused Investment Style. This style is based on a business truth that the value of a company grows over time at the rate at which its profits grow. In the same way, the value of an investment, over time, grows at the rate its income grows. Income growth will drive capital growth.An Income Focused Investment Style requires:
|•||Above-average risk-adjusted returns|
|•||A more predictable investment outcome|
|•||An increase in investment value in line with income growth|
|•||Reliable income to fund your lifestyle now or to reinvest to fund your lifestyle in the future|
Although capital growth receives a great deal of investor attention, investing is ultimately all about income. Retired investors invest to generate an income stream. Pre-retirement investors invest to provide for their future income needs.
We invest in securities issued by large companies that are trading at acceptable yields and have a proven track record of paying regular dividends or interest, thus ensuring consistent and reliable distributions to investors. This, along with the growth in dividends from these underlying investments, ensures more certainty with regard to long-term capital growth from our funds.
We specialise in investing the savings of retired investors and investors saving for their retirement in all asset classes, both locally and internationally, and therefore necessarily adopt a relatively conservative approach.
