To protect capital over a rolling period twelve month period and at the same time capture as much of the upside of equity and fixed income markets as possible.
The Abax SA Absolute Prescient Fund will seek to protect capital over a rolling twelve month period and at the same time capture as much of the upside of equity and fixed income markets as possible. In order to achieve this objective the Fund will invest in a diversified range of South African only securities including, but not limited to, equities, fixed income, money market, bonds, property and listed and unlisted financial instruments in line with the conditions as determined by legislation from time to time. The Fund is not permitted to invest in offshore investment markets. The effective equity exposure will be between 0% and 40%.
The Fund 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 Fund may apart from assets in liquid form also include participatory interests or any other form of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes or other similar schemes registered 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.
The Trustee shall ensure that the investment policy set out in this supplemental deed, the Deed and in all Supplemental Deeds thereto is carried out. For the purpose of this portfolio, the manager in consultation with the Investment 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 a portfolio has been closed, open that portfolio again to new investors on a date determined by the manager.
