WHY FINWEEK WOULD CONSIDER ADDING IT
The fund has consistently delivered higher- than- i nflation returns to investors. For a fixed-income type of fund, this is quite an achievement. For those seeking a short- to medium-term haven for their money, the fund beats inflation even as it holds safe assets.
As inflation is likely to increase due to the weakness of the rand against major foreign currencies, it is imperative that part of an investment portfolio is hedged against price increases. With a low total expense ratio, the fund offers real returns to investors.
