Our investing philosophy and process

We measure success by how consistently we deliver on the portfolio return objectives over a three-year rolling period with a minimum amount of volatility.

Our equity investments are managed according to our outcome-based investing philosophy and we follow a multi-strategy process, which incorporates the prevalent strategies within the SA equity market.

We select our investment managers based on their investment styles to make sure our portfolios benefit from the predominant styles in the market. These investment managers are highly rated, have good track records and complement each other.

Each of our equity portfolios has their own strategy:

Classic Equity
This is our best-view actively managed equity portfolio. We select investment managers on the basis of their diversified active returns through market cycles.

Target Equity
This portfolio is a combination of passive and enhanced passive components. It includes a passive core with actively managed beta strategies.

Outcome-based investing

We place your investment needs at the centre of our investment process so that your financial goals are aligned to your investment outcomes.

Responsible investing

We define responsible investing (RI) as an investment process that includes environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our process. Issues like increasing regulation, the growing need for risk mitigation and a heightened social conscience can be addressed by integrating ESG factors into our investment process.

Rules and regulations

Our multi-asset-class portfolios are complaint with Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act.
