Sarasin Global Equity Real Return
A flexible high-conviction thematic portfolio, aimed at delivering a return in excess of inflation
About This Fund
Leveraging off our established thematic equity process and flexible cash positioning, the fund aims to deliver a real return (+3.5% per annum over a rolling five-year period).
The portfolio can give investors exposure to equity-like returns with a smoother return profile, using a combination of asset allocation and hedging.
Our integrated ESG screening criteria ensures that stewardship is fully embedded in portfolio construction, and aids risk management.
The fund can change its asset allocation within wide parameters, guided by our investment team’s view on asset classes and markets at any given time.
This flexibility means that equity exposure can be shifted between 35%-100%. Ultimately, it allows our team to position the portfolio in the most optimal manner for generating real returns over the long term.
