1NVEST ALSI 40 FUND - Dec 19
The fund performed in-line with the index over the quarter. The last quarterly review of the index saw the deletion of Aspen, PSG Group and Sappi. This was complemented by the addition of Impala Platinum and Sibanye Gold. The fund was repositioned for this change, with Naspers remaining the largest holding in the fund. The fund benefited from its exposure to Anglo-Gold Ashanti, Goldfields, and Anglo-American Platinum, which were the three top performers, with Anglo-Gold Ashanti returning 46.2% over the quarter. However, its exposure to Shoprite, Aspen and Discovery detracted from performance in the second quarter, as these were the three worst performers in the fund. Shoprite returned -28.9% over the quarter.
The investment objective of the portfolio will be to focus on achieving a total compound annual return which will substantially equate to the total compound annual return of the FTSE/JSE Top 40 Index as adjusted to take into account transactions and other costs. The securities to be acquired for the Portfolio will consist of a selection of ordinary shares, as included in the FTSE/JSE Top 40 Index.
