Real estate fundamental are challenging. Hands on management with good asset management skill will outperform. The listed property sector is expected to remain volatile over the short term while capital markets volatility exists.
Over the long term, we expect real estate fundamentals to drive performance and it is expected that growth with income will match inflation.
The Catalyst SA Property Equity Prescient Fund is an actively managed fund, which has a total return objective and seeks to offer investors a return in excess of the South African domestic property equity markets. The fund has a medium to longer term investment horizon.
In order to achieve this investment objective the securities normally to be included in the portfolio will primarily consist of property shares, property loan stock, participatory interests in collective investment schemes in property, financial instruments, assets in liquid form and non-equity securities which are considered consistent with the portfolio's primary objective and that the Act or the Registrar may allow from time to time, all to be acquired at fair market value.
The intention of the fund is to be fully invested in SA real estate securities; however an alternate allocation of up to 25% of the total fund value is permitted.
The minimum cash holding of the fund is subject to CIS restrictions applicable at that time.
