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.

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 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 annual fee (max.) 1.14%
  • Manager annual fee .0.45%
  • Total expense Ratio (TER) 0.54%

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 01 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 FTSE/JSE SA Listed Property Index (SAPY) generated a total return of 1.26% in the fourth quarter of 2016 and a very good relative performance of 10.2% for the calendar year of 2016, which made it the second-best performing domestic asset class.

For the calendar year of 2016 it outperformed SA equities (2.6%) and SA cash (7.5%) but underperformed SA bonds (15.5%). As a matter of interest, over the last three to 10 years the SAPY has actually proven to be the best performing of these four asset classes, and by a comfortable margin.

The best performing shares in the SAPY during 2016 included the likes of SA Corporate, Rebosis, Delta, Growthpoint and Redefine, which rebounded off very depressed levels or high dividend yields post the Nenegate sell-off in December 2015. These are shares with predominantly SA and hence rand exposures.

By contrast, some of the worst performing shares included rand hedge stocks or stocks with UK and EU exposure, including Resilient, MAS plc, Nepi and Rockcastle. This was on account of Brexit combined with the rand strengthening sharply off its worst levels towards the end of 2015 - e.g. it was 25% stronger against the British pound year-on-year.

Portfolio performance and actions

Your portfolio performed in line with the index.

During the fourth quarter of 2016 various corporate actions led to changes in the SAPY, of which the most important ones were the Rebosis rights issue and the shares in issue change in Accelerate Properties. During the December 2016 quarterly rebalance Tradehold was replaced by Echo Polska Properties. We also traded for various shares-in-issue changes, which brought the total oneway turnover of the SAPY to about 1.8%.

Outlook

The SAPY is currently on a 7% clean forward yield, with two-year expected growth in dividends of about 7% p.a. This yield is now at a 180 basis points (bps) premium to the long-bond yield. Also, with SA cash rates rising 0.75% this year, listed property yields are exactly in line with SA cash (repo is 7%).

The spread versus bonds has narrowed, however, from as high as 260 bps in the first quarter of 2016 on account of our local bonds rallying and the SAPY derating slightly, from a low of about 6.6%. The implied average yield of just SA-specific counters is higher, at close to 8%.

Given that 36% of the SAPY earnings are derived from offshore sources, the SAPY’s behaviour relative to the SA 10-year bond is unpredictable. We note that a 100 bps increase (decrease) in the SAPY’s yield equates to a 13.2% (17.5%) capital loss/gain.

Our estimate of long-run SAPY performance versus other asset classes also cements a view that listed property undoubtedly does warrant some level of exposure in a balanced portfolio, even if the historic level of outperformance is unlikely to be repeated given the current entry yield of 7% being lower than the double-digit entry yields of many years ago.
