The Amity BCI Equity Income Fund is targeting a high equity dividend yield combined with long term capital and income growth. To achieve this objective the manager will seek out fundamentally sound listed companies that currently pay dividends and possess the potential for consistent and sustainable dividend growth in the future. The portfolio's equity exposure will be a minimum of 80% of the portfolio's net asset value. The portfolio's investment universe consists of equity securities, preference shares, property shares, property related securities listed on exchanges, interest bearing instruments and securities as well as assets in liquid form. The portfolio may also invest in participatory interests and other forms of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes or other similar schemes operated in territories with a regulatory environment which is to the satisfaction of the manager and trustee of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa and which is consistent with the portfolio's primary objective.
