Each of our clients has a unique goal that requires a personalized investment strategy. Part of our process is to complete a thorough risk profile analysis on every client. The results of this analysis will determine the overall risk appetite of a client and assist us with guiding the client on the most appropriate investment solution for them.
We try to look at investments in different ways and offer our clients inflation-beating returns consistently. We have a long-term view on investments and we believe that active management and diversification are the cornerstones of a good investment strategy
While every client has a unique goal there are certain themes that we have identified as the foundation of our client’s investment strategies. We have partnered with Sanlam Multi-Manager International (SMMI) to develop a range of model portfolios that complement our client’s existing portfolios.
A model portfolio is a basket of funds that are combined to provide an investment solution that aims to achieve a particular objective. We have 3 model portfolios that we offer to Accatax clients, and the strategies can be broken down into the following:
Accatax Cautious – CPI + 3%
Accatax Moderate – CPI + 5%
Accatax Worldwide Flexible – CPI +6%
Our Investment Committee, led by Niel Hougaard (portfolio manager), meets quarterly to determine if any amendments should be made to the various model portfolios construction and where necessary, they are rebalanced. This ensures that the portfolio construction is always in line with the investment strategy.
The Accatax funds are available on the following platforms:
