History of Worldwide Capital

Worldwide Capital was founded in May 2000 to facilitate black economic empowerment equity transactions and design tailor-made financial solutions.

The company has matured into a business that focuses on passive asset management products and other bespoke asset management products.

Although a relatively small organisation and entrepreneurial by nature, most of our senior management have experience in large corporate and multinational organisations where governance, fiscal discipline and institutional responsibilities are ingrained.

In April 2017, Worldwide Capital’s Asset Management Division (WWC Asset Management) was purchased by GTC (formerly Grant Thornton Capital), a well-known financial services company with headquarters in Johannesburg and a number of branch offices around South Africa.

Worldwide also purchased a significant stake in GTC, and has moved its offices to the Grant Thornton/GTC building in Illovo. For more on GTC, click here.
