Rundle Management Services (RMS) was founded in 1995 by Ronald Rundle following his retirement as the Managing Director of the Cape of Good Hope Bank in South Africa.

Together with his son, Dave Rundle and Rob Baillie, RMS was established to provide personal, high-quality financial advice to individuals that were looking to move away from dealing with big corporates and generic solutions.

In 2015, RMS became a subsidiary of the Skybound Capital Group. However, the business remains independent in its advisory role and operates autonomously.

With close connections to many of South Africa’s top professional athletes, RMS has developed a niche service to complement that already provided to private clients, and it has become one of the leading Financial Advisers to international professional athletes.

Through attention to detail and genuine care, RMS Advisory has positioned itself as a niche, flexible and independent financial services provider.


RMS Advisory provides individualised, crafted advice to our clients.

We listen, to understand exactly what you require, and then we find solutions using our extensive network of partnered service providers.

Our skill set and experience range from direct and indirect local & offshore investments, the appropriate structuring thereof, retirement savings, hedge funds, structured notes and tax structuring amongst other things.

We watch the markets, macro-economic conditions and global news flow and meet regularly with product providers to ensure the solutions we recommend and implement for clients are relevant, appropriate and as tax efficient as possible.

RMS Advisory has developed experience in catering for professional athletes, assisting them with all their financial needs and ensuring they are financially secure off the field.

We are confident that we can cater to our clients’ numerous investment needs, no matter how simple or complex they may be.
