Element Specialist Income SCI Fund - Dec 19
The Element Specialist Income SCI Fund (“Fund”) realised a total return of +1.8% for the quarter to the end December 2019, marginally below its benchmark (110% STEFI) return of +1.9% over the quarter. The December 2019 quarterly performance brings the rolling one-year total performance of the Fund to +6.3% (below the benchmark’s performance of +8.0%) and annualized total return over the last rolling three years to +6.4% p.a. (note that all returns are net of/after fees).
Preference Shares and Bonds outperformed Cash (STeFI) over the past 12 months with performances of +18.6% and +10.3% respectively. Inflation Linked Bonds and Property underperformed with returns of +2.9% and +1.9%, respectively. Inflation Linked Bonds underperformed as inflation remained lower than expected at 3.6% (November 2019) and property shares continued to underperform owing to slow economic growth, negative rental reversions, higher vacancies and weak balance sheets, in general, across the sector.
The Fund underperformed over the year, largely owing to its exposure to property shares including Delta Property Fund and Hospitality Property Fund. Delta struggled with high debt levels and its inability to renew long-term government rental agreements. Hospitality struggled owing to lower occupancies due to a weak local economy and water restrictions in Cape Town during previous periods. The Fund has sold out of its position in Delta.
