About Us

Established in 1992, and wholly-owned by Unity Incorporation, Community Growth Management Company Ltd (COMANCO) became the first dedicated socially responsible investment (SRI) fund manager in South Africa. Supported by six labour unions, our mandate is clear:           to offer their members long-term, sustainable investments that offer market-related returns, while seeking to positively impact society and the environment.

So, at a time when SRI was unheard of in South Africa, COMANCO pioneered in the field, and started to engage with the management teams of investee and prospective companies to encourage best-practice in their labour, environmental and governance policies. Today, 25 years later, not only is SRI imprinted on our DNA, we are also a responsible investor and actively screen for environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in our investment processes.
