FUND OBJECTIVES AND FOCUS
The Alexander Forbes Equity Fund of Funds will seek to provide returns above benchmark with greater diversification than traditional equity funds. The universe will consist of all equity CIS portfolios. Investment into other Fund of Funds CIS portfolios is not permitted. The Investment Solutions Multi-Manager Equity Unit Trust Fund of Funds portfolio will compete directly with other Equity Funds of Funds in the South African market.
The fund is a medium risk equity portfolio aimed at adding value through buying participatory interests of other collective investment scheme portfolios. Investments to be included in the fund will, apart from assets in liquid form, consist solely of participatory interests in local and global portfolios in equities (including listed property) as legislation permits. With respect to participatory interests of portfolios operated outside of South Africa, the Manager and the Trustees will first satisfy themselves that the regulatory environment in which these portfolios are operated are of a sufficient standard to provide investors protection, as a minimum, equivalent to that in South Africa. The portfolio will have a minimum exposure of 80% in equities.
