Focus and Objective
The portfolio shall consist primarily of financially sound African (excluding South African) listed and unlisted equity securities, property shares and property related securities listed on exchanges, warrants, fixed deposits, fixed interest instruments, money market instruments, other interest-bearing instruments and assets in liquid form. Where foreign equity securities are invested in, such securities will be listed on an exchange which has been granted full membership by the World Federation of Exchanges (''WFE''). Where such securities are not listed on an exchange which has membership of the WFE, the manager will ensure that it has applied the due diligence guidelines determined by the registrar in terms of the Act. In addition, the portfolio may comprise participatory interests in collective investment schemes, whether listed on an exchange or not, and other forms of participation in portfolios of collective investment schemes in accordance with the provisions of the Act and applicable legislation, as amended from time to time. Where the aforementioned schemes operate in territories other than South Africa, participatory interests or other forms of participation in such schemes will only be included in the portfolio where the regulatory environment of the relevant territory is to the satisfaction of the manager and the trustees of a sufficient standard to provide investors with protection at least equivalent to that offered to investors in South Africa. The Manager may include unlisted forward currency swaps, listed futures and option contracts for efficient portfolio management. To the extent that assets in the portfolio are exposed to exchange rate risk, the Manager may include listed and unlisted financial instruments for the exclusive purpose of hedging exchange rate risk subject to the conditions and limits stipulated by the Act. For the sake of clarity the Portfolio may also invest in contracts for difference and listed depository receipts.The effective African (excluding South African) exposure of the portfolio will always be above 80%. The effective equity exposure will be a minimum of 80% of the market value of the portfolio.The portfolio will not follow a specific theme and the manager will have the flexibility to take advantage of short-term, as well as long-term events and themes within securities markets. In selecting securities for this portfolio, where possible, the manager shall seek to deliver maximum capital growth over the medium to long term at a reasonable level of monthly volatility relative to the African (excluding South African) equity and fixed interest markets.
