Automated investment advice gains traction

At Twisted Toast we are proud to be the technology provider to SmartRand™, South Africa's first automated investment advice product, commonly know as a robo adviser. Since creating SmartRand as a stand-alone product, we have enhanced the technology with our partners Galileo Capital to now be able to offer third parties a robust, compliant backend API (SmartRand Engine), for use by financial institutions.

SmartRand Engine powers the innovative new automated investment advice system Absa Virtual Investor. The launch has been a great success. By now SmartRand Engine has already successfully processed more than 1 000 individual advice transactions on behalf of Absa. Funds under management generated by the system has exceeded expectations. Plans are in place to move the product forward, now that it has proved itself in the market.



Happy spring day!

Wow – what happened to August? Spring has arrived early after a pretty mild winter in Gauteng and the year continues to fly by in a flurry of busyness. The last three weeks have been particularly hectic at The Toast, with six successful CAT® 426F2 Backhoe Loader launch events across the country for Barloworld Equipment, in addition to business as usual.

I usually try to get away with my family for a mini-break in the August school break, before tackling the last three months before the December holidays – which is always the busiest time of year for us. With matric finals looming in just over six weeks and crazy work deadlines, this was not to be this year. Instead, I’ve willed myself to fit gym into my life and can happily say that I’ve managed to keep a steady routine of three times a week for a month now. The real test will be if I can keep it up until the end of the year. The struggle is real!




CAT® 426F2 Backhoe Loader launch

It was great fun to assist Barloworld Equipment with the launch of the new Cat® 426F2 Backhoe Loader in six location around South Africa. Early indications are that orders
for this brand new workhorse has been strong, perhaps signalling an early upturn for
the economy
