Brackenham Managed Fund Comment - Mar 2016
Market review The All Share index ended the first quarter of 2016 up 1.8%. During the same period, the FTSE World Index gained 0.4% in dollar terms. The Rand / US dollar exchange rate appreciated by 4.1 % during the first quarter of 2016.
Investment strategy The Fund's overall investment strategy is the achievement of a consistent real return over the medium to long term, whilst minimising investment risk. The Brackenham SCI Managed Fund seeks to deliver long term capital growth and income normally associated with the investment structure of a moderate risk profile retirement fund.
Asset Mix The Asset Mix of the fund as at 31 March 2016 can be summarised as follows:
o SA Equities 40% o International Assets 27% o Cash and Cash instruments 33%
Local Equity exposure ranged between 38% and 40% for the first quarter. International asset exposure was maintained above the maximum limit of 25% throughout the first quarter of 2016. Due to the Rands ongoing weakness, the Funds offshore exposure has exceeded the permissible limit. This will have to be addressed within the time frames permitted (rand strength later in the quarter did reduce the over exposure significantly) .
Outlook The fund will likely remain fully exposed to International assets for the foreseeable future. Local equity exposure will continue to be monitored closely and increased when considered appropriate.
The Brackenham SCI Managed Fund is a managed prudential portfolio seeking to deliver long term capital growth and income normally associated with the investment structure of a moderate risk profile retirement fund. In order to benefit from positive market conditions and to provide a limited measure of capital and income protection during negative market conditions, the Manager will manage the portfolio's equity, property and fixed interest asset allocation actively to align the portfolio with the Manager's outlook of such conditions. Investments to be acquired for the portfolio will cover the full spectrum of securities, and will include equities, participatory interests in collective investment schemes in property, loan stock listed on exchanges, non-equity securities, preference shares, bonds, money market instruments and assets in liquid form. The Manager may make active use of derivatives to reduce the risk that a general decline in the value of equity markets may have on the value of the portfolio. The portfolio may also invest in local or offshore collective investment 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 equity exposure will range between 0% and 75% of the total portfolio net asset value. The portfolio shall comply with prudential guidelines.
