Objective

Investment objective summary

  • The Fund aims to provide a sterling income return at the rate available in the wholesale Eurocurrency market (the market in which currencies are borrowed and lent outside of the country in which those currencies are legal tender, e.g. a bank outside of the US borrowing or lending US dollars).
      • The Fund is a short-term, variable net asset value money market fund and while it aims to preserve capital, this is not guaranteed.
      • The Fund normally invests in bank deposits repayable within six months and money market instruments (tradable securities where money can be invested for short periods) with a lifespan of up to one year.
      • The Fund’s investments are priced or hedged (an investment technique which aims to protect the value of an investment against currency movements) back into sterling.

      Performance & returns

      25/09/2020
      The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can fall as well as rise. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. If the currency shown differs from your home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Investment objectives and performance targets may not necessarily be achieved, losses may be made. We recommend that you seek independent financial advice to ensure this Fund is suitable for your investment needs. Where a shareclass has been in existence for less than 12 months, performance is not disclosed. No representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided. The Trailing Returns chart may use different Sector performance start dates compared to other performance charts or other marketing literature which may result in minor differences. Where a benchmark index is calculated on a monthly basis, the returns will be out of line with the fund and/or sector which are calculated daily.

      Specific fund risks

      Default

      There is a risk that the issuers of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) may not be able to meet interest payments nor repay the money they have borrowed. The worse the credit quality of the issuer, the greater the risk of default and therefore investment loss.

      Government securities exposure

      The Fund may invest up to 100% of its assets in securities issued or guaranteed by a permitted sovereign entity, as defined in the definitions section of the Fund’s prospectus.

      Interest rate

      The value of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) tends to decrease when interest rates rise.

      Money Market Funds

      These investments differ from deposits as the amount invested is not guaranteed; the value of investments may rise and fall. The Fund does not receive external support to help keep its value stable nor guarantee its liquidity, for example its investments can be easily converted to cash. The risk of loss is borne by the investor.

      The value of this investment may go down as well as up and the return on the investment will therefore necessarily be variable. Neither past experience nor the current situation are necessarily accurate guides to the future. Ninety One Fund Managers Botswana (Pty) Ltd is regulated by the Non-Bank Financial Institutions Regulatory Authority. The TER shows the percentage of the average Net Asset Value of the portfolio that was incurred as charges, levies and fees relating to the management of the portfolio. A higher TER ratio does not necessarily imply poor return, nor does a low TER imply a good return. The current TER cannot be regarded as an indication of the future TERs.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this Rating, Rating Report or Information contained therein.

      The overall rating for a fund, often called the ‘star rating’, is a third party rating derived from a quantitative methodology that rates funds based on an enhanced Morningstar™ Risk-Adjusted Return measure. ‘Star ratings’ run from 1 star (lowest) to 5 stars (highest) and are reviewed at the end of every calendar month. The various funds are ranked by their Morningstar™ Risk-Adjusted Return scores and relevant stars are assigned. It is important to note that individual shareclasses of each fund are evaluated separately and their ratings may differ depending on the launch date, fees and expenses relevant to the shareclass. In order to achieve a rating the share class of a fund must have a minimum three-year performance track record.

      For a full description of the ratings, please see our ratings guide. A rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold a fund.

      The portfolio may change significantly over a short period of time. This is not a buy or sell recommendation for any particular security. Figures may not always sum to 100 due to rounding.
