Our approach to investment planning - What we do

Investment planning - GSB Wealth

At GSB Wealth, we provide informed and strategic investing advice and offer the following:

Lumpsum Investment

Currently, money held on deposit (e.g., in bank savings accounts) is not earning much interest. You should ask yourself whether you want your money to work harder. If you have a lump sum to invest, such as an inheritance or existing savings, we offer a range of investment funds tailored to your risk profile, providing greater potential for growth. Our Lumpsum solution is designed to meet your needs, offering the flexibility to switch and reallocate your investments among various funds.

With full control over your portfolio, you can easily track the value of your investment bond at any time, ensuring transparency and convenience throughout your investment journey.

Our approach to investing your money

There are two ways to make money:

  • work for an income or
  • invest in assets that increase in value over time.

We recommend the latter if you want to achieve your financial goals quicker, outpace inflation, and enjoy retirement to the fullest.

The inconvenient truth is that your investment strategy determines your financial future. Stashing cash in savings accounts simply won’t outrun inflation. GSB offers a range of individual funds and risk-rated portfolios to spread your investments across a wide range of asset types and countries.

Whether you are looking to invest for income, growth, or a combination of the two, our financial advisers provide quality advice, comprehensive investment options, and ongoing financial support to help you achieve your unique financial goals.

Our Investment Committee conducts a stringent external fund manager selection process, only selecting fund managers with superior track records in global markets.

Responsible Investing at GSB

Responsible investment delivers sustainable returns. From the beginning, ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) has been at the heart of everything we do. As a conscious team of highly qualified advisers, we are acutely aware of how the world is changing. We believe responsible investment plays a fundamental role in shaping the world for the better and improving people’s lives.

ESG principles enhance and improve investment returns and real-world results. We know you want your money to do good, so we’ve taken responsibility head-on. From portfolio construction to company engagement, ethical decision-making and responsible investing are critical to survival and guide everything we believe in, say, and do.

We see financial investment as a force for good. By thinking carefully about how and where we invest, we can influence companies’ strategy and direction, helping businesses transform into better versions of themselves. We’re committed to helping you make the right decisions and achieve long-term, sustainable returns.

GSB joined more than 5,000 other organisations around the world that have publicly demonstrated their commitment to responsible investment, and became a member of the Principles for Responsible Investment. This demonstrates our dedication to responsible investing as the only way to achieve long-term investment goals. Check out our responsible investment policy here.

Investing in turbulent times

It’s hard to ignore that our world is in a volatile place. Geopolitical tensions are high, and change is constant. Many investors prematurely search for quick-fix answers, but we advise against short-term changes in your investment strategies as significant value could be lost. Remember, the stock market has always recovered from every conflict, often bouncing back significantly and quickly. Investing in equities has historically been the best way to grow capital and protect it from inflation over the long term.
