Founder and Director
RisCura, All Africa
Jarred founded RisCura in 1999, a company built on the foundations of liability-driven investment (LDI) and effective institutional risk management. Jarred is highly regarded as a pioneer in today’s now widely accepted and evolved theory and practice of LDI. He has extensive understanding of quantitative portfolio techniques and complex instruments as well as judgmental and active risk management. This wealth of experience and skill in the asset management and retirement fund industries was honed in previous roles as Executive Director at FirstRand’s two asset management companies – RMBAM and Southern AM – and as consultant to some of Africa’s largest institutional funds. Now CIO of RisCura, Jarred’s main focus is ensuring RisCura’s institutional clients receive optimal portfolio performance through investment asset class structuring as well as the best efforts and service from all their investment service providers.
