Don't avoid risk, manage it #opportunityknocks

We live in an unpredictable world. Breaking news has us constantly asking ‘what’s next?’ And worse, what is it going to do to my hard-earned savings?

While caution is understandable during turbulent times, investing in this climate is about managing risk appropriately rather than avoiding it. No matter the market conditions, there is always opportunity. It is about choosing the right partner to help you stay the course and make the right investment decisions.

Important information

Collective investment schemes (CIS) are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing, up to 10% of portfolio net asset value to bridge insufficient liquidity, and scrip lending. A schedule of charges, fees and advisor fees is available on request from the Manager, Investec Fund Managers SA (RF) (Pty) Ltd which is registered under the CIS Control Act. Additional advisor fees may be paid and if so, are subject to the relevant FAIS disclosure requirements. CISs are generally medium to long-term investments and the manager gives no guarantee with respect to the capital or the return of the Fund. 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 and past performance is not necessarily a guide to the future. Performance figures above are based on lump sum investments, using NAV to NAV figures net of fees with gross income reinvested, in South African Rands. Different classes of units apply to the Fund and the information presented is for the most expensive class. Fund valuations and transaction cut-off time are 16h00 SA time each business day. This portfolio may be closed in order to be managed in accordance with the mandate. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. A higher Total Expense Ratio (TER) does not necessarily imply a poor return, nor does a low TER imply a good return. Where portfolios invest in the participatory interests of foreign collective investment schemes, these may levy additional charges which are included in the relevant TER. The ratio does not include transaction costs. The current TER cannot be regarded as an indication of the future TERs. Fund prices are published each business day in selected media.
