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 in the table above is a graphical representation of your selection (of the benchmark's past performance of the fund you selected) – including your investment objective, risk profile and fund choice – and is based on the past performance of the fund in relation to your investment. This performance is indicative and not guaranteed. The graph is for illustrative purposes only and investment performance is calculated by taking into account initial fees and all ongoing fees that you have to pay and the income reinvested on the reinvestment date.
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.

Advice fee | Any advice fee is negotiable between the client and their financial advisor. An annual
advice fee negotiated is paid via a repurchase of units from the investor.
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 1 October 2015 to 30 September 2016. A higher TER does not imply a poor return nor does a low TER imply a good return.
The Transaction Cost (TC) is the cost incurred by the portfolio in the buying and selling of underlying assets. This is expressed as a percentage of the daily NAV of the CIS and calculated over a period of 1 year.
** The Satrix MSCI World Equity Index Feeder Fund invests in a share class of the underlying fund (Sanlam World Equity Tracker Fund Class I) which reinvests all income declared and received. As such, the Satrix MSCI World Equity Index Feeder Fund does not distribute.
Traditionally, investment advice come with a fee of up to 1.14%. But our smart online system is working to make investing cheaper and more profitable for you and hence no initial or annual advice fees will be charged. The management fee you do pay is based on the fund selected and calculated on your total contributions, and then applied to the overall value of your portfolio.

Annualised Total Returns
Annualised return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the period measured.
The year 2016 was definitely full of surprises starting with the Bank of Japan
stunning the market with a surprise move to negative interest rates, muted Chinese
GDP growth and the Brexit vote that wiped out about $2 trillion of global stocks
overnight and knocked the British pound to 31-year lows. This was followed by
Trump winning the presidency in a historic election upset in the US, which led to the
dollar reaching a 14-year high in November and also the long-awaited Fed interest
rate hike in December, with probably more to come in 2017.
The standout event over the last quarter must be the spectacular sell-off in US long
bonds following the election of Donald Trump as president. The yield of the 30-year
bond increased from 2.3% in October to 3.2% in mid-December as markets priced in
the likelihood of fiscal stimulus with the Republicans firmly in control. The Fed
continued on a path of vigilance against inflation as leading indicators point to
growth and the first signs of wage inflation become visible. Both these events are a
harbinger for a process that is likely to lead to higher global bond yields in future.
The 2016 performance of global equity markets was reasonable at best. The US
dollar return of the MSCI Developed Markets Index was 8.2% and that for the MSCI
Emerging Markets (EM) Index was 11.6%. The MSCI World Value Index
outperformed its Growth counterpart by 7.8% over the last six months, a level that
only occurred for 6% of the time over the last 20 years. Despite the 2016 rally, the
MSCI Value shares are still close to historic lows in terms of earnings, valuations
and price levels relative to Growth shares. The underperformance of Value stocks
has closely tracked bond yields and inflation expectations, both of which are in a
It is our view that global growth will be driven by an acceleration in the US with
stable growth in the Eurozone. The Chinese economy will probably grow at a slightly
lower rate as fiscal stimulus and the leveraging of the property sector slow down.
The MSCI World Index (Developed Markets) realised a net return of 1.8% in US
dollar terms for the fourth quarter of 2016, which was much better than that of the
MSCI EM Index (-4.2%).
Our Feeder fund buy and sell units in a ‘parent fund’ called the Satrix MSCI World
Index Fund, which tracks 23 developed countries with more than 1 600 shares
included in the index. We do the tracking of this index through a process of
optimisation with a tracking error varying between 15 and 20 basis points.
The MSCI World Index (in rand terms) managed a return of about 1.5% over the last
three months. Over this period the rand weakened slightly against the US dollar.
We don’t expect 2017 to be a calm year in financial markets. In Europe, German
and French elections will bring with them the usual dose of political uncertainty and
further west, chatter around Brexit is unlikely to die down with Article 50 likely to be
invoked in the first half of 2017.
Similarly, locally, the succession debate within the ruling party is likely to intensify. In
the US, the Trump presidency will be under pressure to deliver on the pro-growth
promises, which has swept the Republicans to victory.
These events are likely to cause further market volatility.
