Collective investment schemes are generally medium to long-term investments. Please note that past performances are not necessarily an accurate determination of future performances, and that the value of investments / units / unit trusts may go down as well as up. A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available from the Manager, Sanlam Collective Investments (RF) Pty Ltd, a registered and approved Manager in Collective Investment Schemes in Securities. Additional information of the proposed investment, including brochures, application forms and annual or quarterly reports, can be obtained from the Manager, free of charge. Collective investments are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. Forward pricing is used. The Manager does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio. The performance of the portfolio depends on the underlying assets and variable market factors. Investments in derivative instruments entail specific risks that may increase the risk profile of the Collective Investment Schemes and are more fully described in the Collective Investment Scheme’s Minimum Disclosure Document. The portfolio may invest in other portfolios which levy their own fees, and may result is a higher fee structure for our portfolio. All the portfolio options presented are approved collective investment schemes in terms of Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, No 45 of 2002 (“CISCA”). International investments or investments in foreign securities could be accompanied by additional risks as well as potential limitations on the availability of market information. A fund of hedge funds is a portfolio that invests in portfolios of collective investment schemes, which levy their own charges. This could result in a higher fee structure for the fund of hedge funds.
Sanlam Collective Investments takes full legal responsibility for the co-branded portfolios.
The Manager has the right to close any portfolios to new investors to manage them more efficiently in accordance with their mandates. The portfolio management of all the Blue Ink Sanlam Collective Investment portfolios is outsourced to Blue Ink Investments, an authorized financial service provider in terms of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act, 2002. Standard Bank of South Africa Ltd is the appointed trustee of the Sanlam Collective Investments Scheme.
Performance fees are calculated by comparing the annual return of the Fund and Performance Fee Benchmark which is set in the Fund Minimum Disclosure Documents. Performance fees will only be charged if the Fund return is in excess of the performance Fee Benchmark. All fees are accrued daily in the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the Fund.
