Global High Quality Fund
takes top honours in London
Sanlam Private Wealth
Apr 12, 2017
The COLMA awards are highly valued, with investors themselves voting to determine the winners in each category. They recognise quality of service from the very best wealth management companies and individuals. ‘The Global High Quality Fund celebrated its third anniversary in February, and the fact that it has been given the nod by investors makes winning this top accolade extremely pleasing for us,’ says lead Fund Manager Pieter Fourie.
The Global High Quality Fund was established as part of SPW’s global equity offering, which also includes segregated mandates, to meet the increasing demand for global investments among SPW clients. ‘In order to address the increased needs for global diversification by our clients, we’ve built a top team in London,’ says CEO Daniël Kriel. ‘The hard work and dedication of Pieter and our Global Equity team have indeed paid off. They’ve done an exceptional job as demonstrated by the performance numbers, and our clients have been rewarded handsomely.’
The Global High Quality Fund currently has total assets under management in excess of £125 million/US$150 million, and was ranked number two globally over three years based on Financial Express data for its international equity peer group.
‘The fund aims to produce compound total returns in excess of the MCSI World Index over the medium to long term with less risk. It’s managed on an active, unconstrained, benchmark-agnostic and high-conviction basis while tactically using cash as a risk management tool,’ Pieter says.
SPW’s Global Equity team is also responsible for managing the total global equity offering on behalf of our clients, which now totals around US$611 million (R8 billion). The offering consists of direct equity models totalling US$379 million, and unit trusts totalling US$231 million.
‘Our Global Equity team will continue to build on the long-term success of the Global High Quality Fund and the investment strategies employed to deliver this success for the benefit of our clients,’ Daniël concludes.

All reasonable steps have been taken to ensure that the information on this website is accurate. The information does not constitute financial advice as contemplated in terms of FAIS. Professional financial advice should always be sought before making an investment decision.
Participation in Sanlam Private Wealth Portfolios is a medium to long-term investment. The value of portfolios is subject to fluctuation and past performance is not a guide to future performance. Calculations are based on a lump sum investment with gross income reinvested on the ex-dividend date. The net of fee calculation assumes a 1.15% annual management charge and total trading costs of 1% (both inclusive of VAT) on the actual portfolio turnover. Actual investment performance will differ based on the fees applicable, the actual investment date and the date of reinvestment of income. A schedule of fees and maximum commissions is available upon request.
COLLECTIVE INVESTMENT SCHEMES
The Sanlam Group is a full member of the Association for Savings and Investment SA. Collective investment schemes are generally medium to long-term investments. Past performance is not a guide to future performance, and the value of investments / units / unit trusts may go down as well as up. A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available on request from the manager, Sanlam Collective Investments (RF) Pty Ltd, a registered and approved manager in collective investment schemes in securities (‘Manager’).
Collective investments are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. The manager does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio. Collective investments are calculated on a net asset value basis, which is the total market value of all assets in a portfolio including any income accruals and less any deductible expenses such as audit fees, brokerage and service fees. Actual investment performance of a portfolio and an investor will differ depending on the initial fees applicable, the actual investment date, date of reinvestment of income and dividend withholding tax. Forward pricing is used.
The performance of portfolios depend on the underlying assets and variable market factors. Performance is based on NAV to NAV calculations with income reinvestments done on the ex-dividend date. Portfolios may invest in other unit trusts which levy their own fees and may result is a higher fee structure for Sanlam Private Wealth’s portfolios.
All portfolio options presented are approved collective investment schemes in terms of Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, No. 45 of 2002. Funds may from time to time invest in foreign countries and may have risks regarding liquidity, the repatriation of funds, political and macroeconomic situations, foreign exchange, tax, settlement, and the availability of information. The manager may close any portfolio to new investors in order to ensure efficient management according to applicable mandates.
The management of portfolios may be outsourced to financial services providers authorised in terms of FAIS.
