Our unique philosophy is aimed at providing our clients with the most suitable skills and services in a local context. Our staff comprises on-the-ground professionals, experienced in country-specific, African and international markets and focused on helping clients fulfil their financial objectives by transforming ideas into reality as part of a highly individual service.

Our entrepreneurial culture means we continually seek improvement and innovation. We operate as a cohesive unit, driven by discipline and passion. By pooling the intellect, experience and energies of our handpicked professional teams, we generate and implement new ideas, constantly adding value.

Client relationships

We develop long-term client relationships based on trust, delivery and service excellence.

We believe in listening, as understanding our client's specific needs is integral to the successful delivery of world-class stockbroking services.

Our clients choose to use the services of African Alliance Securities because:

  • We are part of their national business culture
  • We have a physical presence
  • We employ resident staff with local knowledge and experience
  • We focus on delivery and service.

Risk mitigation and value enhancement

At African Alliance Securities we understand that who you invest with is often more important than what you invest in.

Our processes and procedures, our experience and on-the-ground teams enable us to effectively manage the risks inherent in financial transactions.

Our aim is to enhance value through our involvement in any transaction.

Staff

The calibre, professionalism and dedication to delivery of every one of our staff are absolute. We believe in combining experience and expertise with local knowledge.

All regional staff are employed in their countries of origin but may also be used in other regions. This gives our staff greater exposure to other markets, making them better equipped to fulfil our clients’ evolving needs.

Development

Our involvement in the countries where we operate is long term and we are committed to the sustained development of those economies and their capital markets. Where necessary, we challenge the legislative environment to promote greater investor opportunities and protection.

We occupy actual, rather than virtual, offices, run by trained resident staff. Our policies of staff development and training enhance skills levels in the countries where we operate. We develop, implement and invest in systems aimed at conducting business more effectively and professionally.

Governance

We favour an honest, open approach to doing business and we choose to serve clients that leverage the value of our people and resources to the best advantage of all stakeholders. We respect the integrity and confidentiality of each of our clients. We relish opportunities that test us and harness our pooled skills and energies.

African Alliance Securities operates under a strict code of corporate governance.

We are not afraid to take a position and seek to define new benchmarks. We have built our business and our reputation on meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with people who share our vision of success.
