Earn enhanced returns and protect capital with The Glacier Sustainable World Enhancer

30 September 2020 Glacier

We recently launched the second issue of The Glacier Sustainable World Enhancer and will be accepting investments from 28 September until 30 October. The Glacier Sustainable World Enhancer (which is set up in a sinking fund policy underwritten by Sanlam Life Insurance Limited) offers more investors the opportunity for enhanced participation in the growth of companies that contribute to sustainable development across the globe, with the certainty of capital protection.

We are certainly living in a time of increased environmental and social consciousness. While opportunities for sustainable investment are still limited in South Africa, global asset managers and index providers are actively embracing this trend. The Glacier Sustainable World Enhancer provides exposure to the Solactive Sustainable Development Goals World RC 8 EUR Index. This index was designed by leading global bank BNP Paribas and index provider Solactive to give investors efficient access to a global sustainable investment opportunity. Here’s a short video where product manager Roenica Tyson explains the reasoning in selecting this particular index. View video here.

The new issue of the Sustainable World Enhancer will allow more investors the opportunity to diversify their investment portfolio by:

- Adding offshore exposure without currency risk
- Securing 100% capital protection of their full investment amount
- Accessing the opportunity for enhanced returns (indicative four times participation on positive returns)
- Taking advantage of the tax efficient structure and capital nature of returns.

Listen here for more information on how the global portfolio is structured and the case for ESG investments.

By committing a portion of an investment portfolio to this five-year option investors are able to secure this attractive pay-off profile while still keeping some investments accessible for shorter-term needs and opportunities. With continued volatility and uncertainty, the opportunity for attractive growth and protection of capital should not be ignored.
