Assetbase Global Flexible Prescient Cmmnt - Dec 19

2020/02/24 00:00:00
With the end of the year dangerously imminent and major geo-political events left unresloved, Mr Trump and Mr Johnson managed to achieve at least paritial solutions to their respective challenges just before the firework displays occured on New Years's Eve. Mr Trump agreed on 'Phase 1'of the trade deal to avert further tariffs due for implementation in January 2020. It seems that the existing tariffs remain in place. Mr Johnson played a game of brinkmanship and managed to call a general election and to score a clear majority for the Conservatives in the UK Parliament, thanks, in part, to a thoroughly dismal showing by his cometitors. This allowed him to make good on his promise to leave the EU on 31 January 2020 thanks to a deal rushed through Westminster with his new majority. What remain foggy in the Brexit saga are the details of the exit deal and where it leaves Northern Ireland but there is some breathing space to work out the minutiae. Share markets surged in December on the back of the certainty created by the deals. The SP500 returned 31.5% for 2019, let by the Nasdaq at 37%, which in turn was led by Apple which went up 89% in the year. World Developed Markets were up about 25% with Emerging Markets and South Africa not so strong at 15% (in USD) and 12% respectively. In SA, Resources were the clear winners, up over 25%, with Industrials (11%) and Financials (1%) more muted. The Rand was actually stronger for the calendar year appreciating 2.5% with 5% apprectiation in December alone. And to cap the good news, and there is quite a bit of it, SA inflation is termporanily anchored below 4% according to the SARB statistics.
  • Fund focus and objective  
The Manager in selecting collective investment schemes for the portfolio will aim to protect capital and generate moderate income growth over the long term while outperforming its benchmark over a three year rolling period. It will seek to capture relative value opportunities by switching between asset classes and will further focus on manager selection opportunities. In order to achieve this objective the Assetbase Global Flexible Prescient Fund of Funds will, apart from assets in liquid form, consist solely of participatory interest in collective schemes or similar schemes in international equity, bond, money market and property markets which will be constructed within a moderate to high risk framework. The asset allocation will be managed actively. The underlying collective investment schemes are permitted to invest in listed and unlisted financial instruments in line with conditions as determined by the Registrar from time to time.
