The Fund is being managed by Mike Pinggera, who is also responsible for the £155m award-winning Sanlam FOUR Multi-Strategy Fund. The investment focus is listed securities that derive their value from underlying real assets.
Mike Pinggera, Senior Fund Manager at Sanlam FOUR, said:
“Real assets have been a key component of our multi-strategy fund since its launch in 2013. The Sanlam Real Assets Fund has been launched in response to demand from existing investors who wanted additional real asset exposure to supplement their own asset allocation decisions. We see real assets as an ideal way to reflect our long held ‘pillars of a functioning economy’ investment theme and provide access to long-term structural and demographic trends.”
Tom Carroll, Investment Director at Sanlam FOUR, said: “We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Sanlam Real Assets Fund as it involves a strong investment capability being applied to provide solutions to client needs. The team has a very strong track record in investing in real assets and this has led to significant investor backing for a dedicated investment vehicle.. Listed real assets securities are particularly important for investors who have traditionally been unable to access real assets due to the liquidity terms and minimum investment sizes demanded by private vehicles. Our proposition is liquid, and the investment exposure is broad in nature, with the freedom to exploit a global universe of real asset opportunities”.
