The fund will invest in equities, property and money markets, as permitted by legislation. 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 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 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.
