I have had the pleasure of knowing Adrian for some years now. What started out as a business to business relationship, has blossomed into a deep and enduring friendship over the years. I have grown to admire Adrian’s unbridled passion for building the premier private client asset management business in South Africa. He has a relentless perseverance of excellence and does not accept mediocrity in any aspect of Northstar.
He lives and breathes this passion every day, getting involved in all aspects of the business from research and operations, to client services. This is unlike many other CEO’s that I have encountered who seem to preach shallow rhetoric from ivory towers. He and his team have spent thousands of hours honing their proprietary research process on stocks in their coverage to the finest level of granularity that rivals, if not beats, many of the best research houses in the world.
This enables them to unemotionally identify both over and undervalued stocks which leads to their consistent top class performance and keeps them well ahead of the game. This, together with his willingness to engage any client, at any time, irrespective of size, has made Northstar an absolute pleasure to deal with and my first choice high conviction long equity manager for high net worth clients.
