Unit trusts are generally medium to long term investments. Past performance is no indication of future growth. Shorter term fluctuations can occur as your investment moves in line with the markets. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. Unit trusts can engage in borrowing and scrip lending.
Each fund’s Total Expense Ratio reflects the percentage of the average Net Asset Value of the portfolio that was incurred as charges, levies and fees related to the management of the portfolio. A higher Total Expense Ratio does not necessarily imply a poor return, nor does a low Total Expense Ratio imply a good return. The current Total Expense Ratio cannot be regarded as an indication of future Total Expense Ratios.
A schedule of fees, charges and maximum commissions is available from the company. You may sell your investment at the ruling price of the day (calculated at 15h00 on a forward pricing basis). The total return is primarily made up of interest (declared daily at 13h00), but may also include any gain/loss on any particular instrument. In most cases this will merely have the effect of increasing or decreasing the daily yield, but in an extreme case it can have the effect of reducing the capital value of the Fund.
Specialist equity funds may hold a greater risk as exposure limits to a single security may be higher. The total return is primarily made up of interest (declared daily at 13h00), but may also include any gain/loss on any particular instrument. In most cases this will merely have the effect of increasing or decreasing the daily yield, but in an extreme case it can have the effect of reducing the capital value of the fund. Yields are current and calculated daily. The portfolio derives its income primarily from interest-bearing instruments in accordance with Section 100(2) of the Act.
Certain funds may be capped to be managed in accordance with their mandates. Different classes of units apply to these portfolios and are subject to different fees and charges.

Service Fee An annual service fee is calculated on the market value of the fund’s assets (excluding income and permissible deductions) and deducted from the portfolio on a monthly basis.
