Hlelo Giyose, recently spoke to Alec Hogg about our recruitment strategy at First Avenue. Some of the highest paid employees are to be found in South Africa’s asset management companies. The most talented investment professionals are routinely poached by competitors in a dog-eat-dog industry that sells the skills of its rock star fund managers. For Hlelo Giyose, Chief Investment Officer and Principal at First Avenue Investment Management, the long-term benefits for an emerging asset manager come from individuals who are passionate about what they do and are prepared to work according to the requirements of the company. The established investment specialists who are headhunted tend to disappoint, he tells BizNews founder and editor-in-chief Alec Hogg in this podcast.
