ABOUT DREADNOUGHT CAPITAL
Dreadnought Capital was founded in 2012 as an advisory services company with interests in the Republic of South Africa and continental Africa. Since its inception, it has been actively involved in the establishment of derivatives exchanges throughout Africa. It also provides consulting and training services in countries where the feasibility and structure of derivatives exchanges are being debated.
In a short space of time it has established itself as a specialist in providing a workable structure for derivatives exchanges in Africa.
Our mission is to achieve a positive impact, through innovation, anticipating change and identifying new opportunities, for our clients.
Through Intrepid Capital’s extensive market knowledge, innovative culture, and sound client relationships, we are committed to empowering our clients so that in time they will be able to take responsibility for managing their own investments and gain the ability to implement their own solutions to safe-guard themselves against adverse market conditions.
Our knowledge of derivatives is transferred to our clients and together we will develop a tailored strategy to best meet their needs for achieving financial resilience and independence.
WHAT WE DO
At Intrepid Capital, we take pride in our commitment to personalised client service and aim to meet our client expectations. We recognise that each client is unique and has different challenges and opportunities. For this reason we create personalised solutions for each client. No client is too big or too small.
We offer services that include:
- Structuring of complex financial solutions to hedging risks;
- Execution of trades;
- Direct Market Access through a market-leading web based platform to all derivatives markets in South Africa.
Thanks to our vast market knowledge and experience, we are able to provide access to multiple markets for both individual and corporate investors. We go beyond simply counseling all of our investors and instead strive to empower and educate our clients so that they can trade on their own using our DMA.
Assisting corporates to hedge their currency exposure has become increasingly relevant. Our belief is that the client should focus on their core business, rather than currency speculating. We can eliminate the uncertainty by hedging out the currency risk. Our modus operandi is simple, yet effective - we listen to the client, understand the problem, present workable solutions with cost implications, assist the client on the way forward and execute the agreed approach.
