We are specialist investment managers
Whether you need to preserve your capital or create wealth in the long term, our teams of investment specialists can help you achieve your goals.

Excellence and Expertise with an
african heritage

We offer depth of expertise across a wide range of investment disciplines, managing and administering over R600 billion. Our expertise spans active and passive asset management with single- and multi-manager offerings.

We are proud of our South African heritage and the legacies of our founders. ​

STANLIB was founded in 2002 as a joint venture between Standard Bank and Liberty Life. Standard Bank of SA was formed in 1862 and Liberty Life in 1957. The later establishment of Liberty Asset Management in 1969 is a pivotal milestone and represents the start of one of the largest asset managers in South Africa.

Since our inception, we have grown our capabilities to meet the needs of our clients over time and offer alternative ways to achieve investment growth and capital preservation. In 2009, we established a successful Credit Alternatives business (initially within Liberty) and shortly after our infrastructure capability was formed to enable investors access to infrastructure projects within South Africa and Africa. In 2016, we launched STANLIB Index Investments, extending our then passive investment capability. More recently, we are proud to have launched INN8, a truly digital offshore platform.

STANLIB’s achievements and milestones since formation in 2002 continue to shape our business and we remain steadfast in our commitment to protect and grow our clients' wealth and savings over the long term.

Our approach to responsible investing

Our clients have entrusted us with their wealth and savings to deliver long-term returns through the protection and growth of their capital. STANLIB believes that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is a material consideration in delivering risk adjusted returns to our clients and that as active owners we have the ability to influence corporates and entities that we invest in to incorporate ESG factors, thereby making for sustainable businesses.


We are signatories to UNPRI and endorsers of the CRISA code and we seek to follow principles set out in these codes.


STANLIB’s Responsible Investing principles provide our team with an overarching guide or approach. Each STANLIB investment team adopts their own detailed methodology to integrate ESG into their investment process.
