What happens with your money?

The fund managers invest your money in a portfolio of assets such as equities, bonds, cash and listed property, based on your fund selection.

The investment is managed on your behalf according to the fund’s objectives, for example, beating inflation over a certain time period. This plays a key role in determining the return on your investment.

What amounts may be invested?

  • Minimum lump sum: US$25 000*
  • Additional: US$5 000*

*Or the equivalent in euros and sterling

When can you access your money?

The investment term is flexible – you can add to your investment or withdraw whenever you want.

What are the tax implications?

As the product is designed for foreign (non-SA) tax residents, no tax certificates are issued, although we provide an online calculator to determine the capital gains and losses on past and prospective transactions. All unit trust funds on offer are accumulation in nature, and it is investors’ responsibility to ensure that they understand the tax treatment of these share classes in their respective tax jurisdiction.

Income tax and capital gains tax are subject to applicable law in your country of residence. All tax is levied in the hands of the investor.
