The primary objective of the fund is to provide medium to long-term capital growth by investing predominantly in equity funds focussed on countries in the Asian Pacific region including Japan.
The Sanlam Asia Pacific Fund of Funds is a specialist fund of funds with a specific focus on international equity portfolios. The investment objective of the Sanlam Asia Pacific Fund of Funds is to provide access to Asia Pacific economies.
Investments to be included in the Sanlam Asia Pacific Fund of Funds will, apart from assets in liquid form and fixed interest securities consist solely of participatory interests in collective investment schemes or 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. Further in view of exchange control restrictions the portfolio may, but in the discretion of the portfolio manager, invest in participatory interests and other forms of participations in South African registered collective investment schemes with a predominantly rand-edge or offshore exposure.
