About Us


Background

Geometric Progression started in January 2005. Although we are based in Cape Town, we work throughout the continent and Europe. Geometric Progression is formally registered in both South Africa and Botswana. We are specialists in interest rates / fixed income, investment management and market risk. We love technology and a large part of our work incorporates customised applications incorporating:

  • Independent valuations of all financial market instruments;
  • Index tracking;
  • Portfolio optimisation;
  • Yield curves;
  • Risk management;
  • Market abuse & surveillance and much more.

Given the specialist nature of our business, a natural complement to what we do is that of training. We have developed a reputation for being able to take complex issues and break them down into more understandable components.
