The Fairtree Global Real Estate Prescient Fund will be a global real estate fund. The objective of the fund is to offer medium to long term capital and income growth. The fund will seek to achieve its objective primarily through investing in global real estate securities listed on recognised exchanges around the world. These assets will consist of property shares, property loan stock, money market instruments, fixed income, participatory interests in collective investment schemes in property, listed and unlisted financial instruments in line with the conditions as determined by legislation from time to time, assets in liquid form and non-equity securities which are considered consistent with the portfolio's primary objective and that legislation may allow 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.
Nothing in the supplemental deed shall preclude the manager from varying the ratios of securities, to maximise capital growth and investment potential in changing economic environments or market conditions or to meet the requirements, if applicable, of any exchange formally recognised in terms of legislation and from retaining cash or placing cash on deposit in terms of the Deed and any Supplemental Deeds thereto; provided that the manager shall ensure that the aggregate value of the assets comprising the portfolio shall consist of securities of the aggregate value required from time to time by the Act.
