Unit Trust Disclaimer
Collective Investment Schemes in Securities (“CIS”) are generally medium to long-term investments. The value of participatory interests may go down as well as up and past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. CIS are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. Different classes of participatory interests apply to certain portfolios and are subject to different fees and charges. A schedule of fees, charges and maximum commissions is available on request from the manager. CIS prices are calculated on a Net Asset Value (NAV) basis, which is the total value of all assets in the portfolio, including any income accrual and less all permissible deductions in terms of the Act, divided by the number of participatory interests in issue. The manager does not provide any guarantee with respect to the capital or the return of the portfolios. A fund of funds is a portfolio that invests in portfolios of collective investment schemes, which levy their own charges, which could result in a higher fee structure for the fund of funds. A feeder fund is a portfolio that invests in a single portfolio of a collective investment scheme, which levies its own charges which could result in a higher fee structure for the feeder fund. Forward pricing is used. Commission and incentives may be paid and if so, would be included in the overall costs. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. International Investments may include additional risks such as potential constraints on liquidity and repatriation of funds, macroeconomic risk, political risk, foreign exchange risk, tax risk, settlement risk as well as potential limitations on the availability of market information. The portfolios may be closed from time to time in order to manage them more efficiently in accordance with their mandate. Where performance figures are quoted, figures are from Morningstar for a lump sum investment, using NAV-NAV figures net of fees with income distributions reinvested on the ex-dividend date. Annualised performance quoted is the average return per year over the period. Performance of the portfolio and individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, actual investment date, date of any subsequent reinvestment and any dividend withholding tax. Additional information on the portfolios may be obtained, free of charge, directly from the manager. The manager retains full legal responsibility for the third-party named portfolios. Ci is a non-voting Ordinary member of the Association for Savings & Investment SA (ASISA).
