The M1 Capital Global Equity Prescient Fund will aim to deliver capital growth and superior returns over the medium to long-term. The fund aims to achieve this objective by investing in a spread of equity securities by investing in a diversified basket of shares across the globe that is listed on recognized exchanges. The Fund will endeavor to deliver lower volatility and will seek to capture value by focusing on equity selection opportunities. The fund may also invest in money market and other approved instruments including, but not limited to, listed and unlisted financial instruments in line with conditions as determined by legislation from time to time. The fund will be exposed to exchange rate risk.
The Manager may, at its discretion, include in the portfolio listed and unlisted financial instruments for the exclusive purpose of hedging these exchange rate risks. 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 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.
