Focus and Objective
The Sygnia Growth Equity Fund is a general equity portfolio that seeks to identify and invest in companies expected to grow their earnings at above average growth rates. The fund management approach will be to construct portfolios from the bottom-up, based on independent fundamental research and valuations. The manager will also look to identify those companies they consider to be in a growth phase, defined by the fact that they are entering or are already dominant in a market segment that is expected to enjoy above average growth prospects for the foreseeable future. While the fund will not be averse to investing in stocks with higher that average Price-Earnings ratios, the manager will also have the ability to invest in shares with low Price-Earnings ratios whom the manager deems to have above average earnings growth prospects. Assessment of management culture and business strategy will be key to this type of investment.

The Fund will primarily invest in large and mid-sized companies from a range of industry sectors, and will be a concentrated portfolio. This is to ensure that the return from investment opportunities is maximised and not diluted away by an over-diversified portfolio. The portfolio will consist of high-conviction positions, generated by company-specific investment cases that meet the growth criteria set out by the manager. A strong sell-discipline is key within this portfolio and positions will be trimmed as the expected return of any given position declines, either due to a change within the business, or due to share price appreciation.

The portfolios investment universe consists of financially sound equity securities, preference shares which generate capital growth as a result of their earnings growing faster than the average, property shares and property related assets in liquid form. The portfolio may also invest in participatory interests and other forms of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes, registered in South Africa and other similar schemes operated in territories with a regulatory environment which 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 and which is consistent with the portfolio's primary objective.

The portfolio may from time to time invest in financial instruments, in accordance with the provisions of the Act, and the Regulations thereto, as amended from time to time, in order to achieve the portfolio's investment objective. The manager may also include unlisted forward currency, interest rate and exchange rate swap transactions for efficient portfolio management purposes. The portfolio's equity exposure will always exceed 80% with the balance, if any, invested in assets in liquid form.
