Below please see a list of categories with some of the more frequently asked questions from our Institutional clients.
- Pooled Life Funds
- Unit Trust Funds
- Segregated Funds
Pooled products (Life and Unit Trusts) pool clients assets together to acquire a suitable basket of assets. Clients own units in the fund. These funds offer diversification and cost efficiency for clients below the minimum requirement of a segregated mandate.
Segregated mandates splits the client assets from other clients. The main benefits include direct ownership and customization to fulfil specific needs.
- Pooled Life - R20 million
- Unit Trust - R20 million
- Segregated - R500 million
Please note that we actively engage with clients and consider amounts less than the stated minimums.
