Allan Gray Africa ex-SA Bond Fund
The Fund invests in a focused portfolio of African (excluding South Africa) securities that are selected for their expected risk and return profile. The Fund may invest a substantial portion of the assets in a single country or region rather than a diversified portfolio of assets.
Fund objective and benchmark
The Fund seeks to achieve the maximum US dollar total return while minimising the risk of loss within the context of an African bond fund. The benchmark is the J.P. Morgan GBI-EM Global Diversified Index. This index tracks the total returns for Emerging Markets local-currency-denominated sovereign bonds.
Suitable for those investors who:
- Seek exposure to African interest bearing assets
- Are comfortable with market and currency fluctuations
- Are prepared to take on the risk of capital loss
- Typically have an investment horizon of more than five years
The Investment Manager may, at its discretion, refuse a subscription or phase a subscription into the Fund over a number of Dealing Days.
