What investors say

Bogosi M., Pretoria

"I chose to invest my tax in AEI because of the high potential and positive sentiment of Southern African oil & gas assets without having to adjust my risk appetite."

Kevin W., KZN

I'm a repeat investor in Alumni Energy Investments, having received multiple rounds of Section 12J rebates from SARS and the process is simple. What's great is that my taxes have given me a considerable shareholding in a fund of exciting companies that could one day not only yield great returns but also bring about a better South Africa.

Peter T., Cape Town

"Knowing that none of my own capital was at risk was a big motivation for me."

Dr. Zandile, Spengane

I chose to invest my tax in AEI and received 2.5 times my investment amount in shares in the fund. I now have upside exposure to telecoms and energy companies and I will be watching with interest how they perform over the long term.

Frikkie de V, Langebaan

AEI has consistently enabled me to get maximum rebate amounts from SARS. And I now have two asset classes (equities and digital assets) that can potentially deliver returns for me over the long term.

Investing in AEI provides a maximised tax rebate for provisional, PAYE taxpayers as well as companies and trusts in the short term and boosted shareholding in young energy, telecoms and technology companies in the long term.

Owing to our low minimum investment amount ,the AEI Section 12J tax investment caters to a broad investor base. Our clientele include high net worth individuals as well as lower income earners who are on the up.

No personal capital, such as savings, income, or other investments are permitted to be invested. We accept only income tax liabilities, including company tax and personal tax, and structure investments to make more efficient use of your tax liabilities whilst reducing potential capital gains tax, dividend withholding tax and inheritance tax.
