    Allan Gray

    Read Allan Gray Description below:

    We are Africa’s largest privately owned investment management company.

    Our focus is generating long-term wealth for our investors, and we have been investing on behalf of clients since 1974.

    We have offices in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Nigeria, and through our relationships with our sister companies, Orbis and Allan Gray Australia, we are well positioned to research and identify long-term investment opportunities for investors.

    Our steadfast commitment to long-term investing extends to our people as our people are our assets. We don’t have a tangible product to sell.

    We understand that even the most intelligent investment philosophy means nothing without quality minds to execute it, clients to benefit from it, and highly professional and smart people to service those clients.

    This is why we’re searching for focused, resilient final-year students who are dedicated to achieving their long-term goals through the Allan Gray Graduate Intake.

    Each year, we aim to recruit and invest in academic achievers who are motivated and enthusiastic about joining our firm.

    We recruit recent graduates mostly into permanent positions from day one. There is a compulsory four-week orientation. After orientation, the graduates are taken through the Allan Gray Academy, which is an ‘incubated’ functional training environment. This lasts for a period of three to six months, depending on the role.

    The result: graduates in real roles, taking their first steps towards achieving their long-term ambitions.

    Through this process, we invite graduates who stand out in terms of achievements and acumen to apply for a position into the Trainee Analyst Programme. Competition to get into this programme is fierce, and only a few positions are available per year.
