Old Mutual Core Balanced Fund comment - Sep 19

2019/10/23 00:00:00
The broad South African equity market exposure in the fund is primarily through an allocation to the FTSE/JSE Capped Shareholder Weighted All Share Index (Capped SWIX), which is intended to be a fairer refl ection of the investment universe available to a South African investor. The Capped SWIX, which has a strategic weighting of 52.00% in the fund, detracted -4.50% for the quarter ending September 2019.
All sectors had negative returns, with the worst detractors being telecommunication and fi nancials, detracting -7.77% and -6.76% respectively.
In addition to the broad local equity market exposure, the fund also has exposure to SA listed property, which has a strategic weight of 6.00%. The JSE SA Listed Property Index detracted -4.44% for the quarter ending September 2019.
The international equity exposure is invested in the MSCI All Country World ESG Leaders Index, which has a strategic weighting of 20.00%. The MSCI All Country World ESG Leaders Index, which offers exposure to both developed and emerging markets globally, returned 0.81% in US dollar terms. The rand depreciated against the US dollar by 7.35% over the quarter, which would have a positive impact on returns to South African investors.
To diversify the fund away from equity, the fund invests in nominal bonds through exposure to the JSE All Bond Index (ALBI) Index, which has a strategic weighting of 7.00%. The ALBI increased by 0.74% for the quarter. The shorter duration bonds were the best performing with the 1-3 year and 3-7 year baskets returning 1.22% and 1.25% respectively. The long duration bonds with 12+ year bonds returned 0.52%.
In addition to the nominal bond exposure, an allocation is also made to infl ation-linked government bonds through exposure to the JSE IGOV Index, which has a strategic weight of 6.00%. The JSE IGOV Index increased slightly by 0.11% for the quarter.
