Old Mutual Income Fund
MANAGEMENT Fund Manager's Comment
Wikus Furstenberg, MCom (Economics)
Wikus manages a range of fixed interest portfolios, which include the Income Fund, Enhanced Income Fund, Namibia Enhanced Income Fund and the fixed interest component of the Real Income Fund. Wikus joined Old Mutual Investment Group in October 1999 as a fixed interest portfolio manager from ABN AMRO Securities. He started his career in the Economics Department of the South African Reserve Bank. In 1995, he joined ABSA Bank Treasury as a treasury economist and pursued this position until 1997.

The fund aims to offer a high level of income, together with relative capital stability. It aims to pay out a high regular income without putting the investor's money at undue risk. It aims to achieve higher than money market returns by taking on marginally more risk. This fund is suited to investors seeking capital stability. It can be used as a secure parking bay in times of stock market instability as well as a means of phasing money into an equity (share) fund over a period of time. The fund invests in local interest-bearing investments including fixed and floating rate bonds and money market instruments. The average duration of the fund will always be less than two years, which contributes to its relative capital stability. Derivatives may be used for efficient portfolio management purposes.
