Investec Opportunity

  • The strategy targets returns well in excess of inflation (Headline CPI +6% gross of fees under current market conditions) measured over three to five year periods. This is achieved with lower volatility than a traditional balanced portfolio. 
  • The allocation of assets is actively managed with a bias towards equities (maximum 75%), with valuation biased bottom-up stock picking. The balance of the portfolio is invested in fixed income assets such as cash, bonds, inflation-linked bonds and listed property. 
  • The strategy may invest up to 25% in offshore assets.
