Element Islamic Equity SCI Fund - Mar 19
The Element Islamic Equity Fund realised a total return of 5.8% for the quarter to the end March 2019, outperforming its benchmark (average of Shari’ah General Equity Funds with a 1-year track record) performance of 5.1% over the same period. This performance brings the rolling one year total performance of the Fund to 10.1% (net of fees) and annualised over the last three years to 8.6% (note that all returns are net of fees).
The main contributor to the outperformance of the fund, for the quarter ended March 2019, was our exposure to the Platinum and Gold Mining sectors. The shares in these sectors that contributed positively were Impala Platinum and Anglogold Ashanti. These shares benefited from higher commodity prices.
The Element Islamic Equity Fund is an actively managed, domestic general equity fund that aims to provide Shari'ah compliant returns. The fund also uses its presence to promote awareness of corporate responsibility and performance measurements, including environmental management, social responsibility, economic empowerment and corporate governance. This is achieved through constructive engagement with the management of the companies in which the fund is invested.
