  • Fund manager's comment

2017/07/11 00:00:00
The primary objective of this fund is to deliver capital growth over the medium-to-long term. Because the fund is diversified across a number of asset classes, it aims to generate those returns taking only moderate risks.
  • Fund focus and objective  
The portfolio will invest in a combination of equities, bonds, money market instruments, listed property as well as international equities and fixed interest investments. The portfolio will be broadly diversified across asset classes. Active asset allocation and securities selection strategies appropriate to the needs of moderate investors will be followed. This portfolio will be managed in accordance with regulations governing pension funds. The exposure to equities will not exceed 75%. The investment manager will also be allowed to invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments (derivatives) as allowed by the Act from time to time in order to achieve its investment objective. This portfolio will be managed by Obsidian Capital (Pty) Ltd and will at no time replicate any other Sanlam balanced portfolio.
Apart from the above, the portfolio may also invest in participatory interests of portfolios of collective investment schemes registered in the Republic of South Africa or of participatory interest in collective investment schemes or other similar schemes operated in territories with a regulatory environment which is to the satisfaction of the manager and the trustee of a sufficient standard to provide for investor protection which is at least equivalent to that in South Africa.
The Trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in the preceding clauses are adhered to; provided that nothing contained in this clause shall preclude the Manager from varying the proportions of securities in terms of changing economic factors or market conditions or from retaining cash in the portfolio and/or placing cash on deposit.
The Manager shall be permitted to invest on behalf of the Obsidian Sanlam Collective Investments Balanced Fund in offshore investments as legislation permits.
For the purpose of this portfolio, the 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.
