SOUTH AFRICA - Investment Solutions has introduced a niche portfolio range to cater for specific investor needs and market trends.
The portfolios include the value-alpha portfolio, the emerging managers portfolio and the inflation-linked bond portfolio.
The value-alpha portfolio is a medium risk portfolio that aims to diversify risk within value investing by employing a multi-manager approach and allocating assets between a number of value style managers.
The emerging managers portfolio is a medium risk portfolio that targets out performance of the local manager peer group through blending of preferred emerging managers.
The inflation-linked bond portfolio offers investors exposure to local inflation linked bonds issued primarily by the South African Government. An inflation-linked bond provides that the sum of coupon interest and redemption proceeds will be adjusted by the rate of inflation experienced since the date of issue.
