The Aboutir Prime Worldwide Flexible Fund's aim is to maximise total return for investors by way of a flexible portfolio actively investing across different asset classes. The portfolio will invest in a flexible combination of equity, bond, money, or property market assets. The portfolio has complete flexibility with regards to asset allocation both between and within asset classes, countries and regions. No minimum or maximum holdings applies to South African or offshore investment in keeping with the intention to be flexible and unconstrained in executing its best investment views.
The portfolio may also include 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 the trustee and is 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. The portfolio may from time to time invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments, in accordance with the provisions of the Act, and the Regulations thereto, as amended from time to time, in order to achieve the portfolio's investment objectives. The manager may include forward currency, interest rate and exchange rate swap transactions for efficient portfolio management purposes.
The manager shall have maximum flexibility to vary assets between the various markets, asset classes and countries to reflect the changing economic and market conditions.
Nothing in this Supplemental Deed shall preclude the manager from varying the ratios of securities, non-equity securities or assets in liquid form in changing economic environments or market conditions, or to meet the requirements in terms of legislation and from retaining cash or placing cash on deposit in terms of the Deed and this Supplemental Deed.
The trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in this Supplemental Deed is carried out.
For the purpose of this portfolio, the manager shall reserve the right to close the portfolio to new investors on a date determined by the manager. This will be done in order to be able to manage the portfolio in accordance with its mandate. The manager may, once the portfolio has been closed, open the portfolio again to new investors on a date determined by the manager.
