Metope was founded in 2005 as a niche investment management business focusing on alternative investments. It has grown consistently since then and now includes a property focus, which offers both traditional investment management of listed property (or REITS, according to the rebranding of the JSE listed property sector) and direct property. The Group is 100% management owned.
There are two distinct pillars in Metope:
- Investment management (Metope Investment Managers (Pty) Ltd)
- Direct property investments and consulting services (Metope Property (Pty) Ltd)
