PDS Objective

The Fund aims to achieve capital growth equal to, or greater than the Benchmark with lower volatility over the long term by investing globally in listed securities of companies having their registered office or exercising a preponderant part of their economic activities in emerging countries through the Underlying Fund.

What is this fund?

The investment strategy of the Underlying Fund seeks to capture the low risk anomaly. Analysis by Robeco has shown that low-risk stocks (in terms of volatility and beta) are able to generate returns equal to, or greater than, the market with lower associated risks. The beta of a stock or portfolio is a number describing the correlated volatility of an asset in relation to the volatility of the benchmark that the asset is being compared to.

What this rating means?

Superior: Suitable for inclusion on most APLs. The fund outperforms (or is likely to) its peers and benchmark the majority of the time. The fund most of the time has been operating within its mandate and PDS. There are very little to no corporate governance concerns. Management is of a very high calibre.
