Objective

Investment objective summary

  • The Fund aims to provide long-term real returns (through a combination of income and capital growth) measured in US dollars. The Fund targets a return of US Consumer Price Index (CPI, a measure of inflation) +5% (gross of fees) per annum over rolling 5 year periods. While the Fund aims to achieve real returns and its performance target, there is no guarantee that either will be achieved over the long term, or over any period of time and there is a risk of loss. Real returns are returns that are superior to US inflation (currently measured by the annual change in the US Consumer Price Index).
      • The Fund invests around the world in a mix of assets including: the shares of companies; bonds (contracts to repay borrowed money which typically pay interest at fixed times); property; commodities; money market instruments (types of tradable securities where cash can be deposited for short periods); cash; and other eligible asset classes.
      • Investment may be directly in the assets themselves (excluding property and commodities) or indirectly through other funds (which may be managed by the Investment Manager, other companies in the same group as the Investment Manager or a third party) or derivatives (financial contracts whose value is linked to the price of an underlying asset).
      • The Fund may currently invest up to 10% of its value in mainland China. The Investment Manager may decide to increase this limit to 20% but will give investors prior written notice before doing so. Derivatives may be used for investment purposes (i.e. in order to achieve the Fund's investment objectives) or for efficient portfolio management purposes e.g. with the aim of either managing the Fund risks or reducing the costs of managing the Fund.

      Performance & returns

      27/11/2020
      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.

      Specific fund risks

      Currency exchange

      Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of investments and any related income.

      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.

      Derivatives

      The use of derivatives may increase overall risk by magnifying the effect of both gains and losses leading to large changes in value and potentially large financial loss. A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations which may also lead to a financial loss.

      Emerging market (inc. China)

      These markets carry a higher risk of financial loss than more developed markets as they may have less developed legal, political, economic or other systems.

      Equity investment

      The value of equities (e.g. shares) and equity-related investments may vary according to company profits and future prospects as well as more general market factors. In the event of a company default (e.g. insolvency), the owners of their equity rank last in terms of any financial payment from that company.

      Government securities exposure

      The Fund may invest more than 35% 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.

      All information provided is product related, and is not intended to address the circumstances of any particular individual or entity. We are not acting and do not purport to act in any way as an advisor or in a fiduciary capacity. No one should act upon such information without appropriate professional advice after a thorough examination of a particular situation.

      Collective investment scheme funds are generally medium to long term investments and the manager, Ninety One Fund Managers SA (RF) (Pty) Ltd, gives no guarantee with respect to the capital or the return of the fund. The value of participatory interests (units) may go down as well as up. Funds are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. The fund may borrow up to 10% of fund net asset value to bridge insufficient liquidity. A schedule of charges, fees and advisor fees is available on request from the Manager which is registered under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act. Additional advisor fees may be paid and if so, are subject to the relevant FAIS disclosure requirements. Performance shown is that of the fund and individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, actual investment date, date of any subsequent reinvestment and any dividend withholding tax. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. Where the fund invests in the units of foreign collective investment schemes, these may levy additional charges which are included in the relevant Total Expense Ratio (TER). A higher TER does not necessarily imply a poor return, nor does a low TER imply a good return. The ratio does not include transaction costs. The current TER cannot be regarded as an indication of the future TERs. Additional information on the funds may be obtained, free of charge, at www.ninetyone.com. Ninety One SA (Pty) Ltd is an authorised financial services provider and a member of the Association for Savings and Investment SA (ASISA).
       
      A feeder fund is a fund that, apart from assets in liquid form, consists solely of units in a single fund of a collective investment scheme which levies its own charges which could then result in a higher fee structure for the feeder fund.

      Money Market funds are not a bank deposit account. The price of each unit is aimed at a constant value. The total return to the investor is primarily made up of interest received and may also include any gain or loss made on any particular instrument.  In most cases this will merely have the effect of increasing or decreasing the daily yield, but in an extreme case it can have the effect of reducing the capital value of the fund.

      Offshore funds are sub-funds in the Investec Global Strategy Fund, 49 Avenue J.F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

      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 share classes of each fund are evaluated separately and their ratings may differ depending on the launch date, fees and expenses relevant to the share class. 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.
