South African Hedge funds are regulated in terms of the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act (CISCA), with a distinction being made between Retail Investor Hedge Funds (RHFs) and Qualified Investor Hedge Funds (QIHFs).
Sanlam Collective Investments administers a range of both RHFs and QIHFS across the risk spectrum on behalf of the Sanlam Group and selected co-branded partners. Within these, we offer a range of single and multi-managed options, offering access to both niche and established managers.
RHFs are aimed at investors who meet the investment minimum of R50 000. These funds are priced daily and investors can withdraw their funds within a month. The regulations around these funds are also more prescriptive than those applying to QIHFs.
Note: Changes to an existing investment, such as an additional lump sum, ad hoc increase in monthly debit order contributions or changes in intermediary fees, may result in a change to the Effective Annual Cost. To obtain an updated calculation please contact us on 0860 100 266.
QIHFs are aimed at astute or institutional investors who have R1m or more to invest. These funds are priced monthly and three months’ notice is required prior to withdrawal. Fund managers can exercise greater freedom in managing these funds than in the case of RHF.
