The Prudential Namibian Inflation Plus Fund aims to produce above inflation (or real) returns by investing in inflation linked bonds, other interest bearing securities and equities.
The fund will target a benchmark return of Namibian Headline Inflation plus 4% over a rolling three year period (before fees).
Who should invest?
The Fund is ideal for those saving for retirement, those already living off a pension and those wanting to protect their savings from the detrimental effects of inflation, thereby preserve purchasing power and earn a real return.
Key attributes of the Fund
The Fund aims to achieve real returns (returns above inflation). Returns of the Fund are measured against inflation, not the competition allowing the manager to focus on reducing risk in achieving this target return.
As the Fund targets real returns, the uncertainty of inflation is removed from retirement planning. The real return mandate of the fund is therefore focused and pertinent and the relevant results are easily monitored.
The Fund is backed by Prudential's extensive global expertise and depth of resources.
