Sanlam FOUR operates a flexible and pragmatic infrastructure that guides what is ultimately a bottom up stock selection engine. The investment process is focussed on the holdings in our portfolios, ensuring that every company held is delivering as per the team's investment thesis. Sanlam FOUR is of course also continuously searching for new ideas for the portfolios.
Sanlam FOUR's investment team spends the majority of its time monitoring existing positions to ensure that it is fully informed and constantly alert to changes that might prompt a rethink of the investment thesis.
Risk management is an integral part of our approach. The compliance and investment functions receive daily positioning reports which give rise to alerts should guidelines be breached. In addition, the investment teams regularly review portfolios and quantitative risk analysis from Bloomberg PORT & Style Research. Finally, the risk committee issues a risk monitoring report once a month and discusses any relevant findings with the senior team members.
This is a Fund targeting high alpha with a portfolio of 40 to 60 holdings. The Fund will invest across the market capitalisation spectrum and all holdings must have absolute upside potential. The Fund will be conscious of benchmark risk at the total portfolio level.
