Glacier by Sanlam launches the Glacier Global Stock Feeder Fund

20 March 2017Glacier by Sanlam

In partnership with global asset manager Dodge & Cox, Glacier is bringing investors the opportunity to invest in an actively managed global equity portfolio through the Glacier Global Stock Feeder Fund.

The fund is rand-denominated and invests directly into the Dodge & Cox Global Stock Fund (USD class), using Glacier’s asset swap capacity, which means investors will not have to externalise capital. The fund also provides a hedge against a weakening rand. The Dodge & Cox Global Stock Fund has been approved by the Financial Services Board for investment by local investors.

While the rand-denominated global fund universe is dominated by local asset managers applying their trade in offshore markets, Glacier believes there is a need to provide South African investors with access to the skill of true global asset managers.

QUESTION

Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has said that the NHI will bring about change in the industry which will see medical schemes a slim picture of their former selves. Do you think this is the right approach to be taken?

ANSWER

No, medical schemes offer invaluable coverage in a market that is being ravaged by high costs.
Yes, universal healthcare will benefit the country in the long run.
Just wait, the minister will soon find out that a medical industry without medical schemes is no industry at all.
