“In our new business process, we are rigorous in terms of the advisory organizations that we wish to undertake business with.   We consider AMA to be the leading advisory group in South Africa and China, driven by individuals, who have outstanding attention to detail and a real passion for delivering positive client outcomes.  In an industry, which has become increasingly fragmented, the level of stability and professionalism within their senior team makes it easy for us to deal with, in an ever-changing international pensions landscape.  We have always found AMA’s team to be at the forefront of adapting to these changes.” Stewart Davies, CEO for Momentum Pensions
