Focus and Objective
Investment objective
The Investec Emerging Companies Fund aims to grow capital over the long term. The objective is to achieve returns well in excess of a composite of the FTSE/JSE Mid Cap Index and the FTSE/JSE Small Cap Index, measured over three year periods.

The fund aims to give investors a focused exposure to medium and small cap companies listed on the JSE. The investable universe will typically exclude the JSE top 40 listed shares. Where investments have been made in companies that subsequently enter the FTSE/JSE Top 40 Index, these are retained until circumstances necessitate their disposal (e.g. expensive relative to valuation).

Fund features
- The longest running domestic smaller companies fund
- An excellent long-term track record
- A specialist equity fund for investors who want dedicated exposure to the small and mid cap sector
- Uses the Investec proprietary research model and a dedicated team of analysts to assist in the screening and the selection of companies
- Provides portfolio diversification
- More volatile than a general equity fund
