The primary objective of the IP Active Beta Fund is to target a total return of inflation plus 5% over rolling four-year periods. In so doing, the Fund will aim to outperform a fixed asset allocation benchmark, over the same rolling period, through active asset allocation. Given the nature of the Fund, a secondary objective is to keep the Total Expense Ratio (TER) as low as possible to ensure that unnecessary costs do not hinder performance.


The Fund will be managed using a top-down approach, taking into consideration macroeconomic, fundamental, valuation and technical factors. These will serve as inputs to the managers’ tactical asset allocation decisions. The Managers will invest in a combination of passive ETF instruments or Index Tracking Funds (ITFs), up to a maximum of 80% of the portfolio, and the balance in direct Equities, Bonds, Money Market and Property securities. The direct holdings will be managed on an index replication basis wherever possible.

The Fund may also include participatory interests or any other form of participation in portfolios of Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) or other similar schemes in the Republic of South Africa. At all times, the Fund will adhere to regulations governing retirement funds (Regulation 28) and any related capital control legislation as set by the South African Reserve Bank.
