Investment Solutions Superior Yield comment-Mar 16

2016/06/28 00:00:00
The portfolio ended the quarter and year ahead of the benchmark, with both managers outperforming.
The SA Reserve Bank increased interest rates at its January and March meetings by 25bps and 50bps respectively in an effort to combat inflation on the back of a weaker rand. SA headline inflation increased from 5.7 to 7%. Core inflation (ex-food & NAB and petrol & energy) also ticked up to 5.7% from 5.2% over the quarter.
The money-market curve ended the quarter higher, with the 12 month NCD ending the quarter at 8.6%.The three-month Jibar also ended higher at 7.23% from 6.63% after the rate increases. The forward-rate agreements (FRAs) ended on average around 40bps lower, with the forward rate pricing in 75bps worth of increases over the next 12 months at quarter-end. Prescient provided the highest return for the quarter on the back of yield enhancement through a mix of floating-rate assets, credit-linked notes and short dated bank paper, which contributed to performance. Investec also ended ahead due to a high allocation to high-yielding, good-quality credit assets. The managers believe the yield curve is steep and that floating-rate assets are attractive as the SARB will continue to fight inflation. The portfolio has a forward yield of around 9% to 9.2% after the rate increases.

The investment objective of the Investment Solutions Superior Yield Unit Trust is to provide a return in excess of Money Market funds while maintaining a high degree of liquidity and capital preservation. In contrast to a 'Money Market Unit Trust' the Investment Solutions Superior Yield Unit Trust will be permitted to invest in securities with a maximum time to maturity of 36 months (as opposed to 'Money Market Unit Trusts which are limited to 12 months).Investments to be included in the Investment Solutions Superior Yield Unit Trust will include a combination of gilts, cash and other interest bearing securities of a similar nature. The Investment Solutions Superior Yield Unit Trust will predominantly invest in locally issued short term income securities but is permitted to invest a proportion of the fund in locally issued longer dated instruments should the market conditions permit.
