Sanlam Managed Risk UCITS Fund Nominated for Prestigious International Investment Award

8 October 2018

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) and Machine Learning (ML) investment engine.

Using AI and ML, 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

This year, the SMR Fund has been shortlisted for Investment Week's Specialist Investment Awards 2018 making it the first UCITS driven by AI to receive such a nomination.

Because the world's markets are advancing at ever increasing complexity and speeds, Sanlam is providing clients truly dynamic intelligent exposure to markets through the use of AI. In so doing, we create investment strategies that adapt quicker to constantly evolving markets with the aim of providing investors with a better investment experience.

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