Fairbairn Capital is Old Mutual's premier investment offering, presenting the discerning investor with a range of sophisticated local and global investment solutions, accessible through a single centre of investment excellence.
Born of two of Old Mutual's flagship investment businesses – Galaxy and Investment Frontiers - Fairbairn Capital today boasts an individual investor base of over 160 000 as well as in excess of R60-billion of assets under management.
Fairbairn Capital’s website was developed six years ago on Visual Basic 6. In order to align with the rest of Old Mutual’s web development strategy, it was required that all development utilise .Net 3.5, WCF, and TFS. Fairbairn also required a content management system which would provide the flexibility to easily load daily updated content onto the site, a separate brochureware site, and redevelopment of a remote gadget deployed to their brokers’ pc’s and laptops.
