Autus Continues To Expand
When Christo Malan started the business almost 15 years ago, he could not have imagined that at the start of 2015 there would be a team of more than 20 staff members – employed by the company servicing more than 1 000 clients and successfully operating eight unit trusts. This exciting growth has meant that the office space needed to be increased to accommodate the growing staff and operational needs.
Fortunately, the company occupying offices next to Autus vacated their premises at the right time and we were able to take over this available space. The additional space allows us to meet our current requirements and it also makes room for future expansion. During the quieter December period, we renovated our existing and newly acquired offices. The administration and client liaison teams were set up in a new and enlarged work-area.
There are now five administrators dedicated to servicing our existing clients with a sixth undergoing training. The client liaison team has two dedicated Certified Financial Planners who are responsible for financial para-planning and the review of clients. We continuously re-evaluate our internal processes and procedures to ensure our clients continue to experience the high standard of professional and efficient service they are accustomed too.
Another exciting feature of the changes is the new dealing room for the investment team. In order to keep pace with real time news flow and fast changing investment markets globally, you require good systems. To this end, our investment team uses the Bloomberg system.
A significant highlight was the renaming of the building from Pointbreak House to Autus Manor House. This is a symbolic “coming-of-age” for our company and accentuates the recognition and prominence that Autus is gaining as a leading “wealth care specialist.” We look forward to welcoming our new and existing clients to our expanded “home” in the foreseeable future.
