The portfolio must ensure that the aggregate effective exposure to equity and equity related securities is limited to 10%.
The portfolio will be subject to the Prudential Investment Guidelines for South African Retirement Funds, being Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act, or such other Legislation published from time to time.
The portfolio may apart from assets in liquid form also include participatory interests or any other form of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes or other similar schemes.
Nothing in the supplemental deed shall preclude the manager from varying the ratios of asset allocation and securities, to maximize absolute return and investment potential in changing economic environments or market conditions or to meet the requirements, if applicable, of any exchange formally recognized in terms of legislation and from retaining cash or placing cash on deposit in terms of the Deed and any Supplemental Deeds thereto; provided that the manager shall ensure that the aggregate value of the assets comprising the portfolio shall consist of securities of the aggregate value required from time to time by the Act.
The Trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in this supplemental deed, the Deed and in all Supplemental Deeds thereto is carried out.
For the purpose of this portfolio, the manager in consultation with the Investment Manager shall reserve the right to close the portfolio to new investors on a date determined by the manager.
