Coronation Global Strategic USD Income ZAR feeder fund review 2022

Coronation Global Strategic USD Income ZAR feeder fund

The Coronation Global Strategic USD Income ZAR feeder fund offers investors the chance to participate in non-South African-owned assets while also investing in the ZAR. The majority of the fund’s assets are invested in income assets that are issued worldwide. The fund’s risk profile, according to Coronation, is evaluated as 2 out of 10 and is thought to be moderate.

The rating is a result of the fund’s ability to invest between 75% and 100% of its assets in income-producing assets. Bonds, money market instruments, and other debt securities are some examples of the income assets that the fund invests in. International governments, banks, and other businesses all issue these assets.

The investments made by the fund are made in low-risk assets. A portion of the fund may consist of growth assets that are thought to be aggressive. In actuality, just 25% of the fund’s assets are considered growth assets. The fund may invest in listed real estate, preferred shares, and other hybrid debt or equity securities as growth assets.

People who want to invest in a fund that can generate steady growth can use the fund given its risk standards. The fund, however, solely invests in foreign corporations and government bonds. Those who desire to generate revenue quickly may use the fund. 

Coronation encourages investors to make withdrawals from the fund after 12 months. Furthermore, the fund is deemed to be an inappropriate investment option for those who want to invest for a long-term period. This is due to the fund’s limited investment in growth assets. One can invest in the Coronation Global Opportunities Equity fund for long-term investments.

We examine the fund’s investments and its composition, including the industries it invests in below.
