Satrix Property Index Fund

Investing in bricks and mortar has been around for as long as people have had access to capital. But investing in one property has disadvantages: all your eggs are in one basket, and your property may stay on the market for longer than you wish before you get your asking price. This listed property fund addresses these concerns by diversifying across liquid property instruments.

This is a specialist index tracking fund tracking the performance of the FTSE/JSE SA Listed Property Index. It is best suited to investors with a long-term investment horizon (more than 5 years). For more information contact your financial adviser or broker.

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.

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.

Market review

The SA Listed Property Index (SAPY) returned a total of 8.3% in the fourth quarter of 2017 and 17.2% for the calendar year 2017. Over the 2017 calendar year, the SAPY outperformed bonds (10.2%) and cash (7.5%), but underperformed the FTSE/JSE All Share Index (ALSI), which returned 21% over the last 12 months.

Interestingly, over a trailing five- and 15-year period, SA listed property is still the best performing major SA asset class, including equities.

For the calendar year, the best performing shares in the SAPY were those with a 100% foreign exposure, such as MAS PLC (35%), Sirius (41%) and Greenbay Properties (60%). The best performing local share was Equities Property Fund (32%).

During the fourth quarter, and in particular December 2017, following the outcome of the ANC conference where Cyril Ramaphosa was elected as the new party leader, it was actually the more pure SA stocks that delivered superior returns. The rand hedge stocks, such as GRT, RDF and HYP, came off their intra-year highs on the back of the stronger rand in December.

Actions and performance

During the last three months of 2017 the SAPY index delivered a very good return of about 8.3%.

The quarter was very quiet on the corporate action front. With the December FTSE/JSE rebalance Sirius Real Estate replaced the underperforming Octodec and the weightings of Hammerson Plc, Greenbay Properties, MAS and Nepi Rockcastle increased in the SAPY index. The one-way turnover came to 2.9% Your fund underperformed its benchmark slightly due to trading costs and cash flows.

Outlook

Following the strong fourth quarter returns, the SAPY re-rated from a 7.2% clean forward yield at the end of the third quarter of 2017 to a 6.8% clean forward yield, with two-year expected growth in dividends of about 7% p.a. In our view, longer-run growth is in the CPI range of 4-6% p.a. This yield is now at a 170bps premium (i.e. below) to the long bond yield. The implied average yield of just SA specific counters is much higher, over 8% and hence trading at a smaller premium to the SA government bond yield, which trades at 8.5% currently.

Unlike in the past (five or more years ago), the property sector is not 100% exposed to SA or rand income streams. The fund is more balanced/diversified in terms of currency exposures, with about 65% exposed to SA income streams and the balance related to offshore income streams (Australia, UK, Eastern Europe and the USA), which will help to smooth the return profile for the sector over time.
