Why invest in Managed Fund Portfolio (MFP)?

Managed Fund Portfolios (MFPs) are unique investment vehicles, managed by our in-house team of experienced Investment Managers. Our MFPs aim to maximise growth and return possibilities for investors, given the objectives and risk limitations of our various strategies available.

Investing in our MFPs will provide you with added comfort in knowing that your money is being managed by Investment professionals. Furthermore, our range of strategies provide you with the options to generate income, capital growth or both.

Our selection of funds exposes your investment to a diversified strategy, thoroughly analysed, selected, and monitored by the management team. When in need of additional support or assistance with your investments, you can also receive personalised meetings with the investment management team via your financial advisor.

Choosing our MFPs provides you with exposure to multiple fund houses, as opposed to one fund house when alternatively investing directly into a mutual fund.

Investment Management Process

Our investment ideas are reviewed on an ongoing basis and reflect the continuous market opportunities that present themselves.

Once one or multiple opportunities are identified, our management team conducts thorough research on the market, industry and underlying holdings of mutual fund selections. A decision is then made to include one or more products from the selection to construct or rebalance our respective range of strategies. Furthermore, an analysis of asset correlations with other strategy holdings and allocation weightings are also conducted by the management team.

Our MFP strategies are monitored on an ongoing basis with monthly re balancing of each strategy conducted where necessary.

Investment strategies

This strategy is best suitable for Investors with a preference for Income and capital preservation and investors that have a minimum of 3 year investment time horizon.

Investment Objective:

The Conservative Strategy invests primarily in money market funds and bond funds. The selection process is such that a minimum of 30% of the MFP Conservative Strategy is invested in investment grade bond funds while a maximum of 20% may be invested in non-investment grade bond funds. The Strategy also allows for a maximum allocation of 10% to equity funds and 40% in money market funds, depending on the general investment outlook applicable at the time.

The Strategy allows the Investment Managers a high degree of flexibility to shift between different asset classes, depending on market circumstances. The selection process is such that a pre-set maximum is set for each individual asset class while the Investment Managers may opt instead not to take any exposure at all to a particular asset class, subject to always maintaining a 10% minimum exposure to investment grade bond funds.
