The Truffle SCI Flexible Fund shall be a Domestic Asset Allocation Flexible Fund.
The investment manager has substantial flexibility to vary the asset allocation in such a manner as he deems appropriate. The portfolio may also include participatory interest or any other form of participatory interest in collective investment schemes or other similar schemes. Where the aforementioned schemes are operated in territories other than South Africa, participatory interest or any 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, of a sufficient standard to provide investor protection at least equivalent to that in South Africa.
Nothing contained in this supplemental deed shall preclude the Manager from varying the ratios of the aforementioned instruments relative to each other (except as required by the Act), or the assets themselves, to maximise investment potential, should changing economic factors or market conditions so demand. Provided also that nothing contained in the investment policy shall preclude the Manager from retaining cash in the portfolio and/or placing cash on deposit in terms of the deed. Provided further that the Manager shall ensure that the portfolio includes securities and assets in liquid form, of at least the aggregate value required, from time to time, by the Act.
The Manager will be permitted to invest on behalf of the Truffle Flexible Fund in offshore investments as legislation permits.
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 fund 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.
