About I-Maps

The idea for I-Maps first came to Dr Reg Bust in 1992 who was working in the asset management industry in Cape Town, South Africa. He founded the company now known as Visual Portfolio Maps CC in 1996.  The first version of I-Maps took 18 months to produce.    Distributing I-Maps in South Africa was done with Alison Kohler from 1997.  The first two clients were Old Mutual Investment Group South Africa and Allan Gray Ltd.  They are still clients.

The first version of the I-Maps System was produced using Microsoft Visual Basic.  Since then the I-Maps System has been completely re-written roughly every two years.  The current version is the fifth re-write, and is produced using Visual Basic.NET.

From July 2008 to July 2009, Reg moved to the US, where he lived in Skaneateles, New York.

Reg is currently in Cape Town, South Africa.

In 2009 a distributor of I-Maps in Australia and New Zealand began marketing and servicing clients in that region.
