The Amity BCI Global Diversified Fund of Funds is a global flexible fund of funds with the investment objective to provide investors with long term capital growth through a diversified global portfolio. Investments to be included may, apart from assets in liquid form, consist of participatory interests in portfolios of collective investment schemes investing in equity securities, property shares, property related securities, non-equity securities, interest bearing instruments, preference shares and money markets instruments.
The underlying portfolios of collective investment schemes will be registered in South Africa or other similar schemes operated in territories with a regulatory environment which is to the satisfaction of the manager and trustee of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa and which is consistent with the portfolio's primary objective.
The portfolio's offshore exposure will exceed 80% of its asset value at all times. To the extent that the assets in the portfolio are exposed to exchange rate risk, the manager may enter into financial transactions for the exclusive purpose of hedging such exchange rate risk subject to the conditions and limits as stipulated by the Act.
The Manager shall have maximum flexibility in terms of asset allocation and shall not be precluded from continually varying the underlying exposure to equity securities, non-equity securities, bonds, preference shares, property and money market portfolios and assets in liquid form.
Nothing in this Supplemental Deed shall preclude the manager from varying the ratios of securities or assets in liquid form in changing economic environment or market conditions, or to meet the requirements in terms of legislation and from retaining cash or placing cash on deposit in terms of the Deed and this Supplemental Deed.
The Trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in this Supplemental Deed is carried out.
For the purpose of this portfolio, the manager shall reserve the right to close the portfolio to new investors on a date determined by the manager.This will be done in order to be able to manage the portfolio in accordance with its mandate. The manager may, once a portfolio has been closed, open that portfolio again to new investors on a date determined by the manager.
