This actively managed fund invests in a wide range of Namibian and South African interest-bearing assets (for example, money market instruments, bonds, listed property and preference shares). The fund manager moves actively between these assets, based on a relative value approach.
With no restrictions on the average duration of the portfolio, the fund may hold both short- and long-term securities. This gives greater flexibility in taking advantage of interest rate trends and thus to maximise capital gains and income yields. Interest income can be reinvested to generate further growth, or paid out to supplement income. With a secondary focus on capital gains, the fund will maintain a high quality bond exposure and seek out listed property companies showing good prospects for growth and yield.
