Imalivest SCI Worldwide Flexible Fund - Mar 19
Over the long term, equity investments deliver superior returns to investors. For this reason, our portfolio will be fully invested in equities most of the time, unless we consider equity valuations to be expensive or we need to contain risk.
When evaluating equities, we tend to follow a value investment approach with a preference for high quality companies with the potential to generate stable, consistent returns. The importance of identifying and investing in these companies is to harness the compounding effect on shareholder return.
We continue to believe that the wider TECHNOLOGY sector offers an attractive investment opportunity and therefore our portfolio is still heavily invested in these stocks for the following reasons:
- All sectors and companies rely on technology to improve their quality, productivity and/or profitability. - In a highly competitive global economy, companies need to spend on IT to build and protect their market shares. - Capital projects have large technology components. - Ever increasing global data traffic presents a growth opportunity for device makers, semi-conductors and networking companies.
True to our philosophy, we only invest in companies that we regard as quality businesses and that offer value and therefore high growth technology companies won’t normally be found in our portfolios.
The US CONSUMER has capacity to spend due to low fuel costs and low borrowing rates. We anticipate spending to remain strong fuelled further by the strong job market (unemployment is at its lowest) lifting consumer income expectations, causing consumers to save less (currently the personal savings rate in the US is still very high) and spend more on discretionary items. We focus on gaining exposure to this theme via consumer finance stocks like American Express and Synchrony Financial.
Since last year we are slowly selling out of all the stocks held mostly for diversification, and are investing the proceeds in value ETFs tracking the World Index (we make use of a combination of ETFs in order to limit costs). As at the end of March 2019, 15.9% of the fund was invested in 2 ETFs.
The Imalivest Sanlam Collective Investments Worldwide Flexible Fund is a worldwide flexible portfolio that aims to provide investors with reasonably high long term total returns. The portfolio may invest in financially sound global and local equity securities, government -, corporate- and inflation linked bonds, debentures, non-equity securities, property shares, property related securities, preference shares, money market instruments and assets in liquid form. The portfolio may also invest in participatory interests and other forms of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes or other similar schemes operated in territories with a regulatory environment which is to the satisfaction of the manager and trustee of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa and which is consistent with the portfolio's primary objective. The Manager may make active use of derivatives to reduce the risk that a general decline in the value of equity, property and bond markets may have on the value of the portfolio. The manager shall have the maximum flexibility to vary assets between the various markets, asset classes and countries to reflect the changing economic and market conditions.
