About Us

International Wealth Group (IWG) was born out of the need for transparent international financial solutions that offer genuine value and professional financial management to a globalized professional workforce.

Our Company philosophy

Peace of mind for your future

Our philosophy is a simple belief that investing today will build wealth, sustainability and peace of mind for the future.

This is achieved by active management and investment strategies that are research driven.

Our objective is to distil undervalued assets from the universe of traded investments, looking for companies we believe have a brighter long-term future than what their current price suggests.

Strategists

Our Investment Committee

Our Investment Committee establishes and monitors our investment strategy.

They assess investment results and adapt to leverage opportunities and to control risk.

The committee continually review compliance issues to ensure our investment strategies comply with regulation and meet with our objectives.

Our Investment Committee works to a set of clear guidelines that outline criteria for the credit quality, value, liquidity and overall risk characteristics of our portfolios.

This will include limitations on size and types of security trades. The list below defines some of our considerations;

  • Management quality: we look for companies with a management team we believe in
  • Market health: companies in growth markets command higher valuations than stagnating ones; and we take market cycles into account
  • Relative Market position: we do like the benefits of scale and scope strong market positions bring
  • Financial health: we look for companies with strong balance sheets that can survive a bad surprise or a market downturn

All of the above is in the context of the attractiveness of the valuation relative to the profits, the cash flow, the dividend and the book value of the company. When it comes to the buying and selling of particular positions, we complement the fundamental selection process with technical analysis, to ensure value protection and identify timing opportunities.
