The primary objective of the portfolio will be to achieve a steady growth of capital and income for investors through investments in the full range of equity, fixed interest, property and money markets.
  • Fund focus and objective  
The Element Flexible Fund aims to maximise total returns and align the investment objectives of the investor, the fund manager and the asset management company. As a result, this fund has been designed to operate as flexibly as possible within the constraints of the South African market. The fund is actively managed and is able to invest in equities, fixed-interest, listed property and cash. The Element Flexible Fund is Element Investment Managers' 'best view' on domestic asset allocation combined with individual instrument selection based on bottom-up research conducted by Element Investment Managers' in-house research team. The Element Flexible Fund has a medium risk profile. The fund is suitable for individuals and small retirement funds that have relatively low income demands from their capital bases. The fund should be seen as a core holding around which other strategies are planned.
