Since Inception to 31 December 2023

Annualized return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the performance period measured.
Investment performance is for illustrative purposes only. Investment performance is calculated by taking the fees into account and income is reinvestment on the reinvestment date. Investment growth is for the amount of R10 000 since inception of the fund.
The value of investments, as well as any income earned from them, might decline as well as rise. Historical performance is not a predictor of future outcomes. If the currency displayed differs from your local currency, currency movements may cause returns to rise or decrease. Investment objectives and performance targets may not be met, and losses may occur. We advise you to obtain independent financial counsel to ensure that this Fund is appropriate for your investing needs. Performance is not given for share classes that have been in existence for less than 12 months. No assurance is made that any investment will or is likely to produce profits or losses comparable to those obtained in the past, or that losses will be avoided. When compared to other performance charts or marketing material, the charts presented may utilize various Sector performance start dates, resulting in slight discrepancies.
