Ed Gutsche is the award winning founding director of Edge Financial Group. He was educated at Grey Junior and St Andrews College before completing 3 degrees at NMMU and Rhodes University. By the time Ed was 18 he was trading his savings on the JSE & NYSE, the profits of which went into the London and Hang Seng Indexes, until in 2001 Ed had two realisations.
First: Unless you are watching every single stock exchange and market continuously, investing directly is too risky. Second: Why not turn a passion into a career?
Thus in 2001 Edge was born.
Edge specialises in a range of financial services, from local to offshore. The primary difference being that they have very loyal long term staff who provide extremely personal and professional services to all clients. Services range from Medical Aid to Short Term Insurance and Employee Benefits and the core focus, Ed’s passion, Investing. Edge’s offshore division also provides a range of services for employers wishing to provide Global Cover for their employees and assets, international pension funds and offshore investments.
Ed has also received several industry awards from most major investment and insurance companies, most notably Investec, Sanlam Glacier, StanLib, Liberty and Old Mutual.
