Fairtree Select Equity Prescient Comment - Sep 19
Select Equity delivered 0.1% month during the month in line with local indices. Our platinum holdings continue to be the strongest contributors to fund performance, while our holdings in retailers and general miners have detracted. We have taken the opportunity to change our relative positioning during the volatile month.
We see better value in local facing businesses and have added to our bank holdings.
As discussed in our previous commentary the global economic environment continues to face many crosswinds and we continue to stay defensive in many of our holdings.
The objective of the Fairtree Select Equity Prescient Fund is to provide investors with medium to long term capital growth from a selection of high conviction, concentrated equity opportunities, predominantly within the South African market. In order to achieve this objective, the portfolio will invest in selected shares across all industry sectors ranging across large, mid and smaller cap shares. Although the portfolio will predominately invest in South African markets, the manager may also include investments in offshore jurisdictions subject to the investment conditions determined by the Authority 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. 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. The Trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in this supplemental deed, the Deed and in all Supplemental Deeds thereto is carried out. For the purpose of this portfolio, the manager in consultation with the Investment Manager, shall reserve the right to close the portfolio to new investors on a date determined by the manager. This will be done in order to be able to manage the portfolio in accordance with its mandate. The manager may, once a portfolio has been closed, open that portfolio again to new investors on a date determined by the manager.
