About Us Overview
RECM (Regarding Capital Management) was founded in 2003 by Piet Viljoen with the primary intention of putting clients' interests first.
From March 2020, RECM will begin the process of merging its operations with Counterpoint Asset Management. Importantly, the two firms have complementary skills and investment philosophies, and share a similar culture. We believe that the even greater depth and reach resulting from our integrated teams, will be of great benefit to all clients. We share the same vision, and consolidation makes sense.

We have decided that the consolidated business will ultimately move forward with the Counterpoint Asset Management brand. Historically, RECM’s name has presented some logistical challenges, with confusion and inconsistency as to how it is pronounced. The name Counterpoint is simple, easy to remember and provides us with a fresh canvas to work with. During the course of 2020, we will gradually transition to our new name, whilst remaining true to our same values.
We have also embarked upon the process of moving the RECM funds onto the Counterpoint structure. Where fund overlap exists, funds will be merged. This process is expected to take several months to complete in terms of the regulatory requirements. Investors will be kept fully informed throughout.
Combining assets and skills not only enhances our ability to deliver on our investment mandates, but importantly, scale also allows for an incremental reduction in costs to our investors over time. We are confident that this development enhances our ability to deliver on our commitment to investors.
