FUND OBJECTIVES AND FOCUS
The Momentum Value Fund's objective is to maximise returns over the FTSE/JSE SWIX Index over time. The fund is not benchmark cognisant and can differ substantially from other equity funds and market indices given its contrarian approach and its focus on absolute value. The fund offers investors the potential for long term capital growth.
