Focus and Objective
The Element Balanced Fund aims to provide investors with a steady growth of capital and income over the long term while minimising downside risk. The manager aims to do this by investing in an actively managed balanced portfolio. The portfolio complies with the legislation governing retirement funds i.e. Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act (Act 24 of 1956). Element Investment Managers signed the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in May 2006. In signing the PRI, we have committed to adopt and implement them where consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities. We believe that this improves our ability to meet commitments to investors as well as better align our investment activities with the broader interests of society. Element Investment Managers is the first South African investment manager to sign the PRI.
