The Fairtree Flexible Balanced Prescient Fund is a multi-asset medium equity fund. The objective of the fund is to offer absolute returns in excess of inflation over the long term. The fund will invest in a diversified range of local and foreign asset classes as permitted by legislation. These assets include, but not limited to, local and foreign equities, fixed income, money markets, instruments based on the value of any precious metal, property and currencies.
The portfolio is permitted to invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments in line with the conditions as determined by legislation from time to time. The portfolio will be subject to the Prudential Investment Guidelines for South African Retirement Funds, being Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act, or such other legislation published from time to time. The portfolio will predominately invest in South African markets, but is however permitted to include investments in offshore jurisdictions subject to the investment conditions determined by legislation from time to time.
The portfolio may apart from assets in liquid form also include participatory interests or any other form of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes, exchange traded funds or other similar schemes. Where the aforementioned schemes are operated in territories other than in South Africa, participatory interests or any other form of participation in these schemes will be included in the portfolio only where the regulatory environment is to the satisfaction of the manager and trustee and is of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa.
