The Afena Money Market Prescient Fund is a money market portfolio. The fund will aim to obtain high levels of interest income over time whilst maintaining capital preservation and liquidity. In order to achieve this objective the Manager will invest in high quality and diversified money market instruments, including a transaction for the swap of interest rates as defined from time to time, that will generate competitive yields whilst maintaining high liquidity and capital protection. The portfolio is permitted to invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments in line with the conditions as determined by legislation 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.
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.
The Trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in this supplemental deed, the Deed and in all Supplemental Deeds thereto is carried out.
For the purpose of this portfolio, the manager in consultation with the Investment 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.
