The 27four SHARI'AH BALANCED FUND OF FUNDS is an asset allocation prudential medium equity portfolio.
The objective of the Fund is to diversify across asset classes for long term capital growth through a balanced approach.
The manager in selecting collective investment schemes for the portfolio will seek to follow an investment policy which will secure for investors a combination of investments in equity, bond (sukuks), money and property markets. All collective investment schemes and assets will have been approved by the Shari'ah Supervisory Board for time to time. The portfolio will predominately invest in South African markets, but is however permitted to include investments in offshore jurisdictions subject to the investment conditions determined by the Registrar from time to time. The portfolio will be subject to the Prudential Investment Guidelines for South African Retirement Funds, being Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act, or such other Legislation published from time to time. The portfolio may also include participatory interests or any other form of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes or other similar schemes. Where the aforementioned schemes are operated in territories other than in South Africa, participatory interests or any other form of participation in these schemes will be included in the portfolio only where the regulatory environment is to the satisfaction of the manager and trustee and is of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa. Nothing in the supplemental deed shall preclude the Manager from varying the ratios of securities, to maximise capital growth and investment potential in changing economic environments or market conditions or to meet the requirements, if applicable, of any exchange formally recognised in terms of legislation and from retaining cash or placing cash on deposit in terms of the Deed and any Supplemental Deeds thereto; provided that the Manager shall ensure that the aggregate value of the assets comprising the portfolio shall consist of securities of the aggregate value required from time to time by the Act.
