The value of financial products can increase as well as decrease over time depending on the value of the underlying securities and market conditions. Changes in exchange rates may have an adverse effect on the value price or income of any product.

Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Performance has been calculated using net NAV to NAV numbers with income reinvested. The performance for each period shown reflects the return for investors who have been fully invested for that period. Individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, the actual investment date, the date of reinvestments and dividend withholding tax. Full performance calculations are available from the manager upon request.

Prescient Management Company and the Trustee are registered and approved under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act (No.45 of 2002). Collective Investment Schemes in Securities (CIS) should be considered as medium to long-term investments. There is no guarantee in respect of capital or returns in a portfolio. CIS’s are traded at the ruling price and can engage in scrip lending and borrowing. The CIS may borrow up to 10% of the market value of the portfolio to bridge insufficient liquidity. A CIS may be closed to new investors in order for it to be managed more efficiently in accordance with its mandate. CIS prices are calculated on a net asset basis, which is the total value of all the assets in the portfolio including any income accruals and less any permissible deductions (brokerage, STT, VAT, auditor’s fees, bank charges, trustee and custodian fees and the annual management fee) from the portfolio divided by the number of participatory interests (units) in issue. Forward pricing is used. In the event that specific CIS in securities are mentioned please refer to the relevant Minimum Disclosure Document in order to obtain all the necessary information in regard to that unit trust. In rare instances redemption transactions may be subject to a redemption fee. The applicable Prospectus and Key Investor Information Document will be made available upon request.

Please note that there are stipulated cut-off times for all documents, notifications of deposit, investment, redemption and switch applications. These cut-off times are product or fund specific and the applicable guidelines have been stipulated on the relevant supporting or transaction documents, application forms and Minimum Disclosure Documents. Where all required and supporting documentation is not received before the stated cut off time no service provider shall not be obliged to transact at the net asset value price as agreed to. Prices are published daily and are available on the Prescient website at

Investors should at all times remain aware of the risks involved in the buying or selling of any financial product. Where foreign securities are included in a portfolio there may be 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. The investor hereby acknowledges the inherent risk associated with any selected investments and that there are no guarantees (Paragraph 6(2)(f) of BN92). The Manager retains full legal responsibility for any third-party named portfolio (Paragraph 6(1)(g) of BN92).
