The TRG Income Prescient Fund of Funds will aim to provide a high level of income and medium to long-term capital growth over time with targeted real return of 1%. The fund will invest in underlying collective investment schemes that seek to maximise income and which will invest in bonds, fixed deposits, property, money market instruments, listed debentures, and other high yielding securities. The underlying collective investment schemes must ensure that the aggregate effective exposure to equity and equity related securities is limited to 10% and a maximum effective property exposure is limited to 25%. The underlying collective investment schemes are permitted to invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments in line with conditions as determined by legislation from time to time. The portfolio will predominantly invest in South African markets but is however permitted to include investments in offshore jurisdictions subject to the investment conditions determined by legislation from time to time.
The portfolio 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.
