FAMILY

WHO WE ARE, IS A RESULT OF OUR PEOPLE, OUR FAMILY

OUR STORY

We have a unique family culture within Fairtree, with strong, open and honest relationships at the core. This combined with mutual trust and respect, allows for authentic conversations and relationships to thrive.

Fairtree is the culmination of many years of hard work, unwavering commitment and extraordinary skills and expertise of all the members of the Fairtree Family, resulting in the whole being much greater than the sum of its parts, as Aristotle observed. We strive to create a business culture where the work family and personal families are not in conflict, as we are passionate about personal relationships flourishing, and creating an environment where we reach our full potential and live our individual life callings. We truly believe that this will result in our work having a greater purpose, being more rewarding and ultimately ensuring that we are able to enrich the lives of our stakeholders. Here are some of the stories from our Fairtree Family:

Fairtree has given me the opportunity to build a business that serves all its stakeholders: helping clients by constructing investment products that are tailored for their specific needs; creating a work environment and company structure that allows employees and partners to live out their career dreams; and treating all service providers with fair and just practices, whilst focusing on excellence in everything we do. We started small, stayed involved and served clients in the best way he knew how, living by values of excellence, integrity, growth, relationships and family.
Andre Malan
Group Chairman
The foundation of Fairtree has always been the principles and values we established and wholeheartedly have been operating in from the earliest days of the business. Our authentic culture of trust and mutual support has created a unique environment in which I have been able to grow and express myself not only professionally, but also personally, while journeying with wonderfully talented, like-minded people.
I believe Fairtree is a powerful tool enabling us in our mission to put all involved in a better position to live their individual or shared callings. This value add to all stakeholders motivates me to faithfully keep on moving forward on our journey.

Joining Fairtree, I partnered with two people whom I deeply respect. I enjoy being part of an organisation that has helped me achieve my greater purpose and has a direct impact on our clients’ lives, by helping them reach their unique dreams. I have built the deepest and most meaningful friendships since joining the Fairtree team. Our people are important and that’s not just a slogan or something we pay lip-service to.

Having joined Fairtree early on when we only managed two equity hedge funds, I have been part of the growth from a small team to the business we are today. This journey has offered me the opportunity to contribute to product development, expansion of the business in new areas and the establishment and expansion of our operational capability. I enjoy the learning together and friendships with a team of highly talented and dedicated individuals who share similar values.

Herman SandrockGroup Head: Distrubution
As the fourth employee to be hired, I was part of the original team that started Fixed Income as an asset class at Fairtree. Being part of the Fairtree team is a great opportunity to own a portion of my own business within a larger fund management house.
Ian Millard

Being part of Fairtree has allowed me to be part of a company where I can make a difference. As an equity holder, I have the opportunity to develop new solutions and chart their strategy, investment process and philosophy. I enjoy the freedom of autonomy, the support that I have had across the business, and the culture and friendships we have built.
Stephen Brown
Equity: PM
Fairtree has provided a strong foundation and has attracted individuals that strive for excellence. The result has been an environment which allows great things to be achieved. Fairtree fosters a culture of continually challenging and enhancing “best practice”. Creativity is encouraged, in an unassuming sort of way, whilst arrogance is aggressively shunned. I really believe that the  secret ingredients have been our people and culture.
Paul CrawfordFixed Income: PM
The straight-jacket of bureaucracy is stifling to me and I appreciate a small entrepreneurial firm that attracted people with a similar value system. I don’t consider Fairtree to be my employer, it feels much more like a team of friends.

I have been fortunate and privileged to see a large part of the Fairtree story first-hand. To be part of an organisation where you are valued, respected and encouraged to be yourself in a safe environment and reach your own potential is of immeasurable value.
