Collective investment schemes in securities are generally medium- to long-term investments. The value of participatory interests or the investment may go down as well as up. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. MET Collective Investments (RF) (Pty) Ltd (the manager) does not provide any guarantee, either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio. The manager has the right to close certain portfolios to new investors, in order to manage it more efficiently, in accordance with its mandate. Collective investment schemes are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. The collective investment scheme may borrow up to 10% of the market value of the portfolio to bridge insufficient liquidity. Different classes of participatory interests apply to these portfolios and are subject to different fees and charges.
A schedule of fees, charges and maximum commissions is available on request from the manager, or is available on the website at www.metci.co.za. Forward pricing is used. The portfolio valuation time is 08h00 for fund of funds and 15h00 for all other portfolios and the transaction cut-off time is 14h00. The transaction cut-off time should be 14h00, for portfolios except fund of funds, but execution is not always guaranteed. If execution could not take place on the same day, it will take place the next business day, or at the earliest possible opportunity. For fund of funds, the cut-off time for the execution of trades is 14h00 on the day preceding the pricing date.
Foreign securities within portfolios may have additional material risks, depending on the specific risks affecting that country, such as: potential constraints on liquidity and the repatriation of funds; macroeconomic risks; political risks; foreign exchange risks; tax risks; settlement risks; and potential limitations on the availability of market information. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. Investors are reminded that an investment in a currency other than their own may expose them to a foreign exchange risk.
The terms and conditions, a schedule of fees, charges and maximum commissions, performance fee frequently asked questions as well as the minimum disclosure document (MDD) for each portfolio are available on MET Collective Investments’ website at www.metci.co.za. Associates of the manager may be invested within certain portfolios and the details thereof are available from the manager.
