STANLIB Multi-Manager Defensive Balanced Fund – underlying manager changes


As part of our continuous assessment of investment managers and the market, we have reviewed the STANLIB Multi-Manager Defensive Balanced Fund’s portfolio construction framework and have implemented exciting changes. This update details the rationale for the changes made. 


The Fund is constructed as a low equity balanced fund, with the primary objective being to outperform the average of investable peer’s returns – ASISA Multi-Asset Low Equity category – at risk levels consistent with that of the sector. We expect the Fund to deliver a real return of 4% p.a. over the long term on a net of fees basis. To minimise the chance of capital loss, investors should expect to remain invested over a period of at least four years.
