Sanlam FOUR Stable Global Equity Fund
The Fund’s objectives are to deliver attractive real returns (CPI+6%) over a business cycle, with a volatility lower than the wider global equity market and greater resilience during tough market conditions.
These goals are achieved by investing in a concentrated portfolio that is focused solely on high quality businesses that are non-capital intensive, cash generative, non-cyclical and with powerful compounding properties. Only 25-30% of the wider equity market will meet these criteria’s. These are approached with a highly disciplined approach to valuation, purchasing stocks which will allow us to achieve our objectives, whilst minimising the risk of a permanent loss of capital.
