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

The FSB is thinking of scrapping Level II Regulatory Exam (which would have tested product knowledge) in favour of an approach that forces insurers to train staff and monitor their actions. Do you agree with this approach?

ANSWER

Yes. The Level II Regulatory Exams were a massive headache for those who had to write them
No. At least with the exams you knew who were the top achievers. A lot of trust now needs to be given to insurers.
