This unit trust portfolio is suitable for investors seeking medium to long term offshore exposure to a diversified, multi-asset portfolio of global investments with a focus on fixed income. The portfolio aims to be an alternative to offshore bank deposits. It will, therefore, be focused on controlling the level of downside risk to which investors are exposed, but may experience a degree of volatility in performance. The portfolio is rand-denominated, which provides investors who may have utilised their full individual offshore allowance an opportunity to obtain additional exposure to international markets.
