The Sygnia Itrix FTSE 100 ETF is a high risk, passively managed index tracking fund, registered as a Collective Investments Scheme, and is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange as an Exchange Traded Fund. The objective is to replicate the price and yield performance of the FTSE 100 Index as closely as possible by physically holding a portfolio of securities equivalent to the basket of securities comprising the Index and in the same weightings of the Index.
The Fund has a 100% strategic allocation to UK equities. The risk in the Fund is managed by spreading investments across sectors and individual shares. However, the structure of the Fund is dictated by the composition of the FTSE 100 Index. The focus on a high dividend stream and mid-to-large cap companies provides an added benefit in terms of risk management.
