Rand feeder fund or foreign-domiciled international fund?

Key differences between investing in a rand-denominated feeder fund versus a foreign-domiciled international fund

Rand-denominated feeder fund (R)

Foreign-domiciled international fund ($)

A feeder fund invests directly into its underlying offshore fund. Investors invest directly into an FSCA-approved offshore fund in its dealing currency e.g. US dollars, pounds or euros.
Investors do not make use of their individual offshore allowance. Rather, they invest in rands, and when they disinvest, the proceeds are paid in rands. Having completed the fund’s application form, investors effectively instruct their bank (local or international) to make payment to the fund’s bank account.
While investors benefit from being invested in funds that only hold offshore assets, they remain exposed to South African political risk. When disinvesting, investors will then also receive the proceeds in the fund’s dealing currency.
Investors are subject to capital gains tax on any rand depreciation. Investors are only subject to capital gains tax on the applicable foreign currency return (dealing currency) at the prevailing exchange rate.
