We launched Discovery Invest in 2007 to offer consumers unique and comprehensive product range that addresses the current gaps in the market by offering greater protection against poor investment choices.
With Discovery Invest we combine the breadth and skill of the asset management industry with the existing research and development capabilities of Discovery Life.
In the short space of time that Discovery Invest has been launched, over 1 000 intermediaries have written business with Discovery Invest and by June 2008, we managed more than R1 billion worth of assets.
