Sasfin Asset Managers has been appointed as our PPS Defensive Fund portfolio manager. Sasfin Asset Managers has a risk-conscious mindset with a focus on protecting capital by maintaining a diversified asset class exposure. In the PPS Defensive Fund (and in our other partnership strategies) our approach is to identify a manager through our comprehensive research process, with the skill set and capabilities to successfully manage a strategy. Partnership managers typically do not yet offer a similar strategy in the retail space. The PPS Defensive Fund is aimed at investors looking for a low volatility, diversified multi asset portfolio, managed within Regulation 28 of the Pension Fund Act. The primary ob-jective of the fund is to outperform the ASISA SA Multi Asset Low Equity category average and will aim for low short-term volatility with long-term capital growth. The investment horizon for this fund is greater than three years.
