New Road BCI Managed Fund of Funds

The New Road BCI Managed FoF aims to provide the longer term, more aggressive investor with a well-diversified, multi-asset investment. With this fund, the investor might experience higher short-term volatility; however, the focus is on long-term capital growth, with a smaller proportion dedicated to income.

This fund falls within the following ASISA Category:

SA Multi-Asset High Equity


The fund aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Benchmark: ASISA SA Multi-Asset High Equity category average
  • Target Return: South African Inflation (CPI) + 5% over a rolling 7-year term


The strategies we employ to achieve the above objectives are:

  • Limit the fund’s total equity exposure to a maximum of 75% of the portfolio’s net asset value, with listed property (limited to 25%) and income instruments comprising the balance.
    (The income component is used to achieve a more stable return profile, because of the yield opportunities on these instruments, while the equity component is used to achieve longer-term capital growth and dividends.)
  • Maintain exposure to both local and offshore instruments, with global allocation forming a maximum of 30% of the portfolio’s net asset value.
    (We use our foreign investment allowance to obtain global exposure.)
  • Apply a building block approach to asset allocation to maintain strict control of the asset exposures.
  • Construct the local and offshore equity components of the fund by using a core-satellite approach, whereby low-cost passive solutions are used to gain broad market exposure and well-priced actively managed solutions are used to gain exposure to specific strategies, styles, and risk management methodologies.
  • Use predominantly active solutions to construct the income components of the fund.
  • Ensure that the fund complies with Regulation 28.
