Sanlam Managed Risk UCITS Fund - 5 Crown Fund Rating by Financial Express (FE)

18 October 2018

The Sanlam Managed Risk Fund has been awarded a 5 Crown Fund Rating by Financial Express (FE).

FE Crown Fund Ratings are quantitative ratings designed to help investors identify funds which have displayed superior performance in terms of stock picking, consistency and risk control.

FE covers hundreds of thousands of investment instruments collected worldwide and enable investors to distinguish between funds that are strongly outperforming their benchmark and those that are not.

The score is made up of three components – alpha, relative volatility, and consistently good performance with the crowns being awarded as follows:

  • 5 FE Crowns - Top 10% of funds
  • 4 FE Crowns - The next 15% of funds
  • 3 FE Crowns - 2nd Quartile of funds
  • 2 FE Crowns - 3rd Quartile of funds
  • 1 FE Crown - 4th Quartile of funds

In June 2017, Sanlam enhanced the risk management process of the Sanlam Managed Risk (SMR) UCITS Fund through the use of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) investment engine.

Using AI, the investment engine analyses and interprets vast amounts of data to:

  • Identify and predict evolving market behaviour
  • Minimize the capital loss (drawdowns) and time in loss risk
  • Maximize portfolio outcomes (total returns) over a cycle

We believe that man with machines are far more efficient than man alone.
