Sanlam Global fund announces £1bn in assets under management

Sanlam Investments, part of international financial services group Sanlam, today announced that its Sanlam Global High Quality strategy has exceeded £1 billion in assets under management.

An integral part of this is the Sanlam Global High Quality Fund launched in 2014. The fund, led by Pieter Fourie, Head of Global Equities at Sanlam Investments and his multi-award-winning team, focusses on capital growth and aims to deliver excess returns above the MSCI World Index over the long term.

Pieter Fourie, head of global equities at Sanlam Investments said: "Our Global High Quality strategy clearly delivers what it sets out to accomplish and has become an integral part of Sanlam Investments' strategy. We have realised this significant achievement through both strong investment performance, and inflows driven by the track record of our excellent team.

"The market volatility of the past year provided notable challenges, but it was a chance for the strategy to once again prove its metal. The investment strategy of investing in high quality businesses has historically limited downside for investors during periods of market stress as proved last year during the last quarter's equity market set back. As investors continue to demand investment excellence and expertise, we expect the fund to continue on its growth trajectory."
