Ashburton GOVI Tracker Fund

For investors seeking returns that are in line with the JSE Government Bond Index

What is the fund objective?

The Ashburton GOVI Tracker Fund is managed on an indexation basis and the full economic performance of the fund is aligned with that of the JSE Government Bond Index. This index comprises all bonds issued by the Republic of South Africa that fall into the top 10 positions of the Composite All Bond Index (ALBI).

What is the investment process?

We believe our overall investment philosophy and governance processes are among our key strengths. The investment process ensures that the full economic performance of the fund is in line with that of the index by buying only constituent securities in the same weightings in which they are included in the index and selling only securities which are excluded from the index from time to time as a result of index reviews or corporate actions. This ensures that the index performance and constituents are fully replicated within the fund, reporting minimal tracking errors in the most cost efficient manner.
