This graph illustrates how an investment of R1000 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 performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance, 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 therefore not guaranteed to happen again in the future. 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 Fund 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 fund factsheet. Annualised return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the period measured.

Advice annual fee (max.) 1.15%

Advice fee

Any advice fee is negotiable between the client and their financial adviser. An annual advice fee negotiated is paid via a repurchase of units from the investor.

Total Expense Ratio (TER)

This is the percentage of the value of the financial product that was incurred as expenses relating to the administration of the financial product. A higher TER does not necessarily imply a poor return, nor does a low TER imply a good return. The current TER may not necessarily be an accurate indication of future TERs.

Transaction Cost (TC)

This is the percentage of the value of the financial product that was incurred as costs relating to the buying and selling of the assets underlying the financial product. Transaction Costs are a necessary cost in administering the financial product and impacts financial product returns. It should not be considered in isolation as returns may be impacted by many other factors over time including market returns, the type of financial product, the investment decisions of the investment manager and the TER.

Total Investment Charges (TER + TC)

This is the percentage of the value of the financial product that was incurred as costs relating to the investment of the financial product.
