Prescient Wealth Balanced Fof Comment - Sep 19

2019/10/17 00:00:00
Global equities (+2.1% in US dollars) recovered August's losses, led higher by Japan (+4.0%) on solid earnings and Europe (+2.7%) on lower interest rates and a central bank stimulus surprise. The US (+1.7%) aslo rose on the second Fed interest rate cut in two months, while emerging markets (+1.9%) also advanced. Developed market bond yields were mostly unchanged after expected interest rate cuts from the US Federal Reserve and European Central Bank. US markets have priced in a further quarter-point interest rate cut in 2019 despite more hawkish Fed comments.
The oil price (+0.6%) ended slightly higher after initially spiking following a missile strike on a Saudi refinery generating 5% of world supply - the price fell back through month-end despite escalating US/Iran tensions with output expected to resume quickly.
The FTSE/JSE Capped All Share Index (+0.3% in rands) rose as kind comments from Moody's pushed financials (+3.5%) higher - industrials (-0.7%) fell and resources (-1.1%) were dragged lower by a sharply weaker gold mining (-14.9%) sector as precious metals fell on improved risk sentiment.
The All Bond Index (+0.5%) was marginally up as the South African Reserve Bank kept interest rates steady. The excessively steep yield curve provided a buying opportunity for options on longer dated government bonds given the rising probability of a shift down in long-term rates.
The rand (+0.3% vs he US dollar) advanced strongly intra-month but weakened latterly. SA recorded a surprisingly robust trade surplus in August on improved commodity exports.
  • Fund focus and objective  
The PRESCIENT WEALTH BALANCED FUND OF FUNDS aims to provide medium to long term capital growth. The Manager in selecting collective investment schemes for the portfolio will seek to follow an investment policy which will secure for investors a combination of investments in equity, bond, money or property markets and may have an effective equity exposure of between 0% and 75% depending on market movements and flexibility. The portfolio will predominately invest in South African markets, but is however permitted to include investments in offshore jurisdictions subject to the investment conditions determined by the Registrar from time to time.
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 also include participatory interests or any other form of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes or other similar schemes. Where the aforementioned schemes are operated in territories other than in South Africa, participatory interests or any other form of participation in these schemes will be included in the portfolio only where the regulatory environment is to the satisfaction of the manager and trustee and is of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa.
Nothing in the supplemental deed shall preclude the Manager from varying the ratios of securities, to maximise capital growth and investment potential in changing economic environments or market conditions or to meet the requirements, if applicable, of any exchange formally recognised 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.
