Fund Strategy

We believe that the benchmark choice and resulting returns form the most important elements of an equity strategy - by investing in a passive vehicle the returns to investment strategies are known. By applying a full replication strategy there is no risk of deviation from the chosen benchmark.

This graph illustrates how an investment of R100 would have grown had you invested for the time period displayed. Like everything in life, all investments can change and come with some degree of risk. That’s why we need this disclaimer, to tell you that past performances are not necessarily a guide to future performances, and that the value of investments/units/unit trusts may go down as well as up. The performance shown by this graph happened in the past and is not guaranteed. The performance is calculated by taking into account initial and ongoing fund manager fees and assumes that you reinvested all the income earned by the fund over this period.

The other line on the graph is for the performance of the designated benchmark of the fund – normally either an index or other funds in the industry that are comparable to the fund you’ve chosen.

The Manager has the right to close the portfolio to new investors in order to manage it more efficiently in accordance with its mandate. The actual fund performance can be viewed on the Minimum Disclosure Document. Annualised return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the period measured.

The portfolio manager may borrow up to 10% of the market value of the portfolio to bridge insufficient liquidity. This fund is also available via certain LISPS (Linked Investment Service Providers), which levy their own fees.

Total Expense Ratio (TER) | The Total Expense Ratio (TER) is the charges incurred by the portfolio, for the payment of services rendered in the administration of the CIS. The TER is expressed as a percentage of the daily NAV of the CIS and calculated over a period of 1 year. The TER is calculated from 01 April 2017 to 30 March 2018. A higher TER does not imply a poor return nor does a low TER imply a good return.

This is expressed as a percentage of the daily NAV of the CIS and calculated over a period of 1 year.

Satrix is a South African ETF pioneer and caused a shake-up in the SA investment space when it introduced the country to ETFs in 2000 by launching the first ETF listed on the JSE. The Satrix TOP 40 ETF needs no introduction and serves as the go-to broad market exposure investment option for professional and amateur investors alike. So transformative have the Satrix product set and access options been to South Africans that people often (erroneously) refer to all index trackers as Satrix.

Since 2000 Satrix has listed 12 more ETFs. In fact, in 2017 alone it added a property ETF, an inflation-linked bond ETF, a Quality factor ETF and three offshore ETFs to its range. You can now build a completely diversified portfolio of local asset classes using only low-cost Satrix ETFs.

To make investing ever easier and cheaper (and online) we started working with the ground-breaking team at EasyEquities. The low-cost, no-minimum, online platform they had developed, which allowed fractional share trading, is perfect for our clients too. In no time at all we had our very own www.SatrixNOW.co.za platform up and running, which allows you to do everything online with no annual fees and extremely low trading costs. With SatrixNOW there really are no excuses as you can invest as little as R10.

Macro review

In the US, equities began 2018 strongly, buoyed by ongoing strength in economic data, robust earnings and the confirmation of a major tax reform package. US business confidence reached an unexpected, multi-decade high in March, while GDP for Q4 2017 was revised upwards to show growth of 2.9%. The latter part of the quarter, however, saw a marked increase in volatility as investors first digested the destabilising potential of an elevated US inflation reading and the possibility that the Fed may need to become more proactive in raising interest rates, as well as escalating US-China trade sanctions, which precipitated a renewed bout of turbulence in March.

In the Eurozone, the economic backdrop remained encouraging over the three months. GDP growth for Q4 2017 was confirmed at 0.6% quarter-on-quarter. Unemployment was stable at 8.6% in January 2018. However, forward-looking surveys painted a picture of slower future growth. The composite PMI hit a 14-month low in March, albeit the reading of 55.3 still implies solid growth. European Central Bank chairman Mario Draghi reiterated that interest rates would not rise until well past the end of the quantitative easing programme. On the political front, the key event of the quarter was Italy’s election, which yielded no overall winner. Germany formed a new government after its inconclusive elections in September 2017. Angela Merkel remains as chancellor after her centre-right CDU/CSU agreed another grand coalition with the centre-left SPD.

Emerging markets saw positive returns in the first quarter despite a rise in market volatility stemming from tensions over global trade. Brazil former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva saw his criminal conviction upheld, while in Russia the central bank cut interest rates and the country’s debt was upgraded to investment grade by ratings agency S&P. In China, macroeconomic data remained broadly stable, albeit there were ongoing signs of a gradual slowing in momentum, with official PMI easing to 50.3. By contrast, there was concern in India over a reported fraud case at a state-owned bank.

Global and local market review

Global equity markets declined in Q1 2018 with investors unnerved first by concerns about the path of US interest rate rises and then worries over trade. US equities began the year strongly, boosted by tax reforms, but ended the quarter lower amid concerns over inflation and the impact of US-China trade sanctions. Following a 10% correction from its January highs and rallying back 8% by early March, the S&P 500 Index suffered another 5% pullback in the last few weeks, ending the month of March down 2.5% and losing 0.8% over the last three months, which was the first negative quarter since the third quarter of 2015. Eurozone equities posted negative returns as worries over US rates and trade affected other markets. Italy’s election was inconclusive but had limited impact on the equity market.

Emerging market equities outperformed, delivering a positive return in US dollars. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index was up +1.5% (total returns) in Q1 2018, ahead of the MSCI World (Developed Market) Index, which was down 1.2% - the first quarterly loss in two years. Over the last three months the FTSE/JSE All Share Index posted a total return of -6.0%. This has been its worst quarterly performance in eight years (Q2 2010: -8.2%). SA Industrials were the worst performer, returning - in eight years (Q2 2010: -8.2%). SA Industrials were the worst performer, returning - 8.0% (Naspers and Tiger Brands were both down 12%). SA Resources lost 3.8% (rising global uncertainty) and SA Financials lost 3.6%.

Of the equity sectors, the top first-quarter performance came from Non-life Insurance (+24.4%), Fixed Line Telecoms (+10.0%) and General Retailers (+9.2%). The worst performance came from Real Estate Development and Services (-31.2%), Software (-30.5%) and Household Goods (-29.0%).

Portfolio performance, attribution and strategy

After a fantastic performance during the 2016 calendar year, Value measures have experienced a disparate 2017 and start to 2018. The divergence between deep value measures (e.g. price-to-book) and yield measures (e.g. dividend yield) has been substantial, with the former struggling, and the latter continuing to perform well as investors seek defensive qualities during a period of high levels of uncertainty and flight to safety.

The impact of the news in December regarding the accounting irregularity at Steinhoff still has investors on edge, with further speculation surrounding Capitec and technology shares continuing to weigh on market sentiment. Further to these stock-specific issues, global forward macro momentum has slowed, which has largely favoured defensive shares with high dividend yields, in particular domesticorientated shares, of which the Stable Dividend strategy has significant exposure to. During Q1 2018, exposure to Foschini (TFG), Nedbank (NED), Truworths (TRU) and Telkom (TKG) played a strong positive role here, while an underweight position in Naspers (NPN) added a significant amount of excess return. Holdings in Exxaro (EXX), African Rainbow Minerals (ARI) and Kumba Iron Ore (KIO) detracted from the index’s relative performance.

In terms of changes to the FTSE/JSE Dividend Plus Index over the prior quarter, Coronation (CML), Glencore (GLN) and MMI Holdings (MMI) were additions in March, while Bidvest (BID), Mr Price (MRP) and Sibanye Gold (SGL) were deletions.
