Numus is the Latin word for a coin used in Roman times. A coin begins as a mineral, is molded and shaped, creating something of greater value than its original form. Much like its namesake, Numus Capital is focused on creating value for our clients.
Numus Capital is a niche stock broking and asset management firm based in Cape Town.
We offer a range of services to institutional and private clients. Our team has a wealth of experience in trading the markets and managing client portfolios.
We aim to generate consistent absolute returns. While investment returns are important, we focus strongly on capital preservation and believe in protecting our clients’ investment as if it were our own. We invest in our portfolios alongside our clients, further demonstrating this commitment.
