About Us


Who are we?

Momentum Global Investment Management was established in the UK in 1998 as a specialist global investment manager. We focus on designing, building and managing outcome-based investment solutions and on providing investment consulting services. 

The firm is part of Momentum Metropolitan Holdings Limited, a large South African insurance and investment business, listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

This is supported by a tried and tested focussed investment process. Together, we call this the Momentum Outcome-Based Investing approach.
