The BCI Value Fund is a general equity portfolio with a “value” bias with the objective is to maximise long term investment returns, particularly during periods of weaker equity market growth. The portfolio aims to have a slightly lower risk profile than typical equity funds by investing, amongst other factors, in shares trading at a discount to their intrinsic value and shares whose prices do not reflect future earnings potential. The portfolio‘s equity exposure will always exceed 80% of the portfolio's net asset value. The portfolio's investment universe consists of equity securities, preference shares, property shares and property related securities listed on exchanges, money market instruments and assets in liquid form. The portfolio may from time to time invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments. The manager may include forward currency, interest rate and exchange rate swap transactions.
