The ClucasGray Flexible Income Prescient Fund will aim to provide medium to long-term income and capital growth over time by investing mainly in income generating assets. The Fund will invest in a diversified mix of assets, including equities, bonds, property, preference shares, debentures, fixed interest securities, money market instruments and listed and unlisted financial instruments as determined by legislation from time to time. The Fund shall have limited flexibility in terms of asset allocation and shall not be precluded from continually varying the underlying exposure to local assets. The Fund will employ asset and geographical allocations to reflect changing economic and market conditions to maximise returns over the long term. The Fund can invest across various jurisdictions and markets subject to the investment conditions determined by legislation 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. Where the aforementioned schemes are operated in territories other than in South Africa, participatory interests or any other form of participation in these schemes will be included in the portfolio only where the regulatory environment is to the satisfaction of the manager and trustee and is of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa.
Nothing in the supplemental deed shall preclude the Investment Manager from varying the ratios of asset allocation and 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.
