The Managed Fund is an actively managed multi-asset fund with a flexible investment style. Aiming to deliver steady total returns (the combination of income and capital growth) and a reasonable level of income. As style-agnostic investors, we approach investments as realists, not prophets.
Backed by decades of experience, we actively change our minds when conditions change.
The Fund has good long-term track record of achieving equity-like returns at much lower volatility than the FTSE/JSE All Share Index.
Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of investments and any related income.
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.
The use of derivatives is not intended to increase the overall level of risk. However, the use of derivatives may still lead to large changes in value and includes the potential for large financial loss. A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations which may also lead to a financial loss.
Some of the countries in which the Fund invests may have less developed legal, political, economic and/or other systems. These markets carry a higher risk of financial loss than those in countries generally regarded as being more developed.
The value of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) tends to decrease when interest rates rise.
