If you’re thinking about tech,
who’s thinking about your customer?
It can take a lot of time and money to build new technology systems, or retrofit legacy ones, while growing your business in an increasingly complex environment. DMA’s proprietary technology stack is designed to simplify investment management processes, so regulated entities can focus on what matters: growing wealth.
There is no scale
without shared services.
Thanks to our shared-services model, partners benefit from reduced costs and improved productivity. Our modular technologies give you the flexibility to implement only the system you need, while connecting front, middle and back office in one SaaS solution.
DMA helps over 140 institutional investors across South Africa, Mauritius and the UK keep pace with a changing industry.
We help private investors get more from the markets, and feel better about their money, through our award-winning retail platfrom, moneybetter.
And we believe that we have a responsibility to improve savings culture, and make investing more accessible to more people.
