ClucasGray Equity Prescient Comment - Dec 19
The final quarter of 2019 proved to be a strong one for investors in the ClucasGray Equilibruim Prescient Fund. The Fund gained 3.7% in the quarter, ahead of the peer group which gained 2.6%. The objective of the fund is to provide industry and inflation beating returns to investors over long periods. We are strong advocates of the benefits of balanced funds, like the Quilibruim Fund, to navigate through all market conditions - their ability to derive return from a combination of security selection delivereed a compound return of nearly 8% per annum since inception in Jarnuary 2015 - ahead of inflation of around 5.1% and the peer group of 4.7%. The Fund reaches a significant milestone this month when it celebrates it's 5 years anniversary. Whilst a 3% real return is pleasing in the context of the environment. we believe these funds have a proven ability to deliver real returns in excess of 5% - certainly that remains our bojective.
The ClucasGray Equity Prescient Fund is a SA only, general equity fund. The fund aims to provide long term capital growth ahead of its benchmark (SWIX) and the competing unit trust category by investing in any shares that are listed on the JSE. The fund is a high conviction fund aiming to hold no more than 25 stocks at any one time. Fundamental analysis, a valuation discipline and a belief that inefficient markets create opportunities in mispriced assets underpin our process.
