Sanlam Investment Management first ventured into the social media terrain in September 2006 when we launched our blog, sim.intelligence.
At the time, our aim was to share our thought leadership and investment insights with you. But with the world becoming quicker, better, faster in the ensuing years, we thought it was time to refresh our offering and so we invite you to enjoy our recently refreshed multi-media portal.
As value investors, we believe that financial markets are inefficient and that we can add value relative to the general market indices as a result of this. Market inefficiency exists primarily because financial market participants are driven by human emotions. These emotions cause asset prices to move away from their fair values, which creates investment opportunities for patient investors. Also, as various market participants have different investment time frames and liquidity requirements, assets can become mispriced on a temporary basis.
