The BCI Worldwide Flexible Style Fund aims to deliver a high medium to long term total return by investing in growth, quality and/or value stocks depending on manager's view of the most suitable investment style at the time and may rotate investment styles based upon the manager's view at the time. The portfolio is suitable for investors with a moderate to aggressive risk profile. The portfolio may invest in global and local equity securities, interest bearing securities, property shares, property related securities, preference shares, bonds, money market instruments, non-equity securities and assets in liquid form. The portfolio may also invest in participatory interests and other forms of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes 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 may from time to time invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments, in accordance with the provisions of the Act, and the Regulations thereto, as amended from time to time, in order to achieve the portfolio's investment objective. The manager may also include forward currency, interest rate and exchange rate swap transactions for efficient portfolio management purposes. The manager shall have the maximum flexibility to vary assets between the various markets, asset classes and countries to reflect the changing economic and market conditions. However, the portfolio's maximum property exposure is 50% of its market value. The portfolio holdings will never mirror any other portfolio of the manager.
