Equity Portfolio

This portfolio’s objective is to maximise returns to the investor over the medium to long-term through investing in FTSE/JSE listed shares. The portfolio’s returns are based on the ability of the All Share index to deliver returns above inflation and the ability of the fund manager to identify undervalued securities within the asset class. The portfolio will remain fully invested in local equities.

The portfolio is actively managed and invests in local equities, listed property, bonds, cash as well as offshore assets. The objective is to deliver risk adjusted returns over the medium to long term.

Preference Share Portfolio

The portfolio consists of a selection of FTSE/JSE listed preference shares. It aims to provide investors with an attractive interest rate linked income in the form of dividends. This portfolio is not for investors seeking long term capital growth but rather those looking for an attractive income yield.

Compensator Portfolio

The portfolio aims to offer a high dividend yield with relatively low volatility by investing in a selection of preference shares, inflation-linked bonds and vanilla bonds. The preference shares generate a dividend yield linked to the prime interest rate while the inflation-linked bonds aim to preserve capital in real terms and add additional yield over inflation. The optimal combination of asset classes reduces the overall risk of the portfolio.
