  • Fund management  
STANLIB Multi-Manager
STANLIB Multi-Manager was established in 1999 and is the centre of excellence for multi-managed solutions within STANLIB. The investment team, led by Chief Investment Officer Joao Frasco, consists of an experienced team with a diverse set of investment skills. We have offices in Johannesburg and London, and currently have mandates in excess of R90 billion under stewardship. STANLIB Multi-Manager Funds are designed to deliver superior investment returns more consistently than through a single asset manager or mandate. Our approach allows investors’ to outsource the fund / manager selection decision, which includes the ongoing due diligence of managers and construction of portfolios, to meet pre-defined objectives over time. Risk management is a fundamental component of our investment philosophy and process and is therefore approached holistically. It permeates every part of our investment process, requiring participation and accountability from all individuals involved in the process.

Stanlib Multi-Manager Balanced Fund - Dec 19

2020/03/02 00:00:00
Equities continued to show signs of weakness in the third quarter, undoing the positive momentum of the first half of the year. Global equities returned 7.3% in rand terms for the quarter, driven mostly by the rand losing 7.4% of its value against the US dollar. The sell-off happened in July and August when market participants became more concerned about slowing global trade as a result of the US/China trade war. Central banks tried to soften the blow by engaging in expansionary monetary policies, but their efforts fell short.
SA equities followed the global trend losing 5.1% for the quarter, driven by poor performance from resource and financial companies which lost 6.4% and 6.8% respectively. Sasol lost 27.7% of its value after it announced a second delay in its financial results pending an in-depth investigation into the Lake Charles project. Year-to-date, the company is down 39.1%. Single metal companies such as Northam, Implats, Harmony and Sibanye bucked the trend, rallying between 25% and 40% during the quarter. The fall in financials was largely on the back of poor business confidence in SA, which was at a 34-year low in August. In response, most investors have shied away from domestic equities – concerns of poor economic growth, escalating contingent claims from the state-owned companies as well as a stubbornly high unemployment rate are some of the factors that have contributed to this. The same factors drove returns in the property market, which declined 4.2% for the quarter. The presence of UK property companies in the local bourse also detracted from the market. Brexit remains a major problem for these companies. This was evident in Intu’s 39% plunge for the quarter, despite gaining 12% in September.
