About us

A global, best ideas
hedge fund

Cuthman Capital is an independent, owner-managed asset management company with offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa.

A global, best-ideas hedge fund

Cuthman Capital was founded with the intention to professionally manage proprietary capital. Since the launch of the Cuthman SDR Prescient QI Hedge Fund in 2021, we have made significant progress and generated double-digit gains – despite tough global markets. In 2022, we won Best New Fund and Best Global Fund at the HedgeNews Africa Awards.

Cuthman Capital is a fully independent business

It is overseen by portfolio managers Tobie Lochner and Peter Wille. Tobie has 20 years’ experience in financial markets and was previously a shareholder and managing director of Peregrine Capital – one of South Africa’s largest and longest-running hedge funds. Peter also brings two decades of experience as an analyst and portfolio manager to the table – notably as a former head of research at Nedbank Private Wealth. Meet the rest of the team.

Tobie and Peter met as students back in 2001. Studying the learnings of investment masterminds, making shrewd investments from a very young age and networking with thought leaders and innovators were some of the things that fuelled their entrepreneurial spirit and gave birth to the idea of one day creating a performance-orientated investment business.
