ROB SPANJAARD​

Investment Director
Rezco Asset Management

Rob has a long-term fascination with investment markets. As a student at UCT, Rob won the national Financial Mail reader stock picking competition. He graduated with a B.Com and CTA before passing the Chartered Accountants’ Board Exam. Rob then worked as a portfolio manager for Momentum Asset Management. In his last year, the unit trust he managed was rated number one in its sector.

Rob left Momentum in 1991 to lead a private equity deal. In 2006, after growing the turnover and profits by 25% per annum for 15 years, and listing the company as Sovereign Foods, Rob decided to return to asset management and sold the business to institutional investors. At that stage, Sovereign Foods was the most profitable company in its industry.

Rob then joined Wally Gray at Rezco with the objective of establishing a consistently high performing unit trust company. The first fund, the Rezco Value Trend Fund, was registered in 2004 and has won numerous best fund awards over that time.
