Element Balanced SCI Fund - Jun 19
The Islamic Balanced Fund realised a total return of 0.2% for the quarter to the end of June 2019, underperforming its benchmark’s (average of Shari’ah General Balanced Funds with a 1-year track) return of 0.6%. This brings the one year performance of the Fund to 7.7% (net of fees) and annualised over the last three years to 8.6% (note that all returns are net of fees).
The main contributor to the underperformance of the fund, for the quarter ended June 2019, was our exposure to both the soft commodity stocks such as Rainbow and Tongaat as well as our exposure to energy-related stocks such as Sasol and Glencore.
The fund’s absolute returns were aided by its allocation to sukuks. Sukuks are shariahcompliant income instruments.
The Element Balanced Fund aims to provide investors with a steady growth of capital and income over the long term while minimising downside risk. The manager aims to do this by investing in an actively managed balanced portfolio. The portfolio complies with the legislation governing retirement funds i.e. Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act (Act 24 of 1956). Element Investment Managers signed the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in May 2006. In signing the PRI, we have committed to adopt and implement them where consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities. We believe that this improves our ability to meet commitments to investors as well as better align our investment activities with the broader interests of society. Element Investment Managers is the first South African investment manager to sign the PRI.
