Ci Collective Investments (RF) Prop Ltd.
South African--Multi Asset--Low Equity
CPI for all urban areas +2% pa over any rolling 3 year period
1st Fusion Asset Management (Pty) Ltd.
1st Fusion Ci Guarded comment - Sep 18
Guarded is primarily a strategic asset allocation fund, which means that we adhere closely to a long-term asset allocation. We hold a basket of assets which have unique and complimentary risk and return characteristics, ensuring that we achieve our benchmark of CPI + 2% per annum over a rolling 3 year period.
The Guarded Fund is somewhat less exposed to equity than its Multi Asset Low Equity peer group - it's very defensive nature should bring it to the fore during tough times.
The fund blends actively managed sub-funds by best of breed fund management teams with some passive building blocks to ensure that the funds' overall strategic objectives are met. The blending of various strategies entails sophisticated qualitative and quantitative analysis to ensure that you get the benefits of each management team without diluting the overall fund style.
1st Fusion has a meaningful strategic exposure to SA property - in a conservative multi-asset fund like this the predictable short-term income and significant longer-term inflation escalations make it a uniquely valuable asset class.
We currently utilise Coronation, Investec, Prudential, Allan Gray and Satrix to manage 80% of the fund. The remaining 20% is managed in house, balancing out our strategic asset class allocations.
