Investment Philosophy

At the heart of our investment philosophy is a strong belief in discipline and liquidity. Discipline provides a transparent investment process that is reliable and repeatable. Liquidity makes the delivery of the process possible regardless of market conditions.

Sanlam FOUR Multi-Strategy Fund

The Fund is an actively managed multi-strategy growth portfolio structured using core and satellite assets. The core position is a global equity strategy which allocates across eight equity indices or regions and provides the majority of directional risk to the overall fund. The satellite strategies are non-directional or low beta investments capturing active alpha, emerging market, high yield and global infrastructure.

The underlying approach and building blocks of the multi-strategy Fund can be adapted to suit a range of product types to include “Diversified Growth Funds” (DC defaults), a multi-strategy hedge fund and target outcome funds (targets can be performance or volatility based).
