OM Albaraka Balanced comment - Dec 19

2020/02/21 00:00:00
Emerging markets were lifted by positive sentiment, as local equities sprinted up towards the end of the year. South Africa, however, was once again dimmed into darkness as Eskom’s nightmare continues regarding energy generation. Globally, we saw markets ending higher as US-China trade agreements were partially rolled back and the UK’s elections helped political stability.
The FTSE/JSE All Share Index (ALSI) was up by 4.63% over the quarter ending December 2019. Large, mid- and small caps returned +4.54%, +12.91% and +0.74% respectively for the quarter ending December 2019.
The local currency strengthened against the greenback by 7.50%, by 0.26% against the sterling, and 4.91% against the euro for the quarter ending December 2019.
The top sectors that contributed positively were healthcare and basic materials returning 20.50% and 13.78% respectively for the quarter ending December 2019. The worst performing sectors for the quarter, down by 13.31% and 0.92% respectively, were telecommunications and technology. In this context, the fund returned +1.61% for the quarter ending December 2019.
This fund is suited to investors wanting moderate to high long-term growth from their Shari’ah compliant investments, with less volatility in the long term than pure equity. The fund is also suitable as a stand-alone retirement investment. The fund’s offshore allocation is at approximately 25%, providing investors with significant diversification benefits. The fund is a Regulation 28 compliant, medium-equity allocation fund. The implication is, in terms of its mandate, it can hold a maximum of 60% in equities.
The fund’s current allocation to equities is roughly 60%. Around 40% of the fund is invested in domestic equities and approximately 20% in offshore equities. Shari’ah compliant short-term cash investments now comprise 40% of the fund
