Each Ashburton ETF portfolio aims to replicate or track, before expenses, the performance of an applicable Index (the Index) in terms of both the price performance and the income from the component securities of the Index. This allows investors the opportunity to obtain market exposure to the performance of the Index in an easily tradable form through the shares being listed on the JSE Limited.
The investment policy of each portfolio is to replicate the price movement and income yield of the index that it is designed to track. This is achieved by purchasing the constituent securities in the same weighting
as they are included in the relevant index. The asset manager is not mandated, nor incentivised, to outperform the index.
