The Coronation Global Capital Plus Fund (house view currency) is a unit trust that invests in multi assets worldwide. The fund was launched on the 1st of September 2009 and has been able to grow since its inception. Growth by the fund is much slower than a fund that is concentrated in equities or bonds

The Coronation Global Capital Plus Fund offers a diverse portfolio that invests in many countries. The fund has most of its portfolio invested in developed economies, with equities making up the majority of the fund. Other assets, such as real estate bonds and more, also make up part of the fund. 

The fund also invests in emerging markets and it is well invested in China and other emerging markets. However, the fund is biased towards investments in developed economies. Most of the fund is invested in the USA, some parts of Europe and Japan. 

The fund is suitable for anyone that wants to invest in a single international investment offering exposure to different assets. The fund offers moderate risk and isn’t as volatile as funds that are concentrated. Furthermore, the fund aims to curb its investments in growth assets to 50%. 

By doing this, the fund will only change or grow in easy-to-manage percentages. For instance, the investments only achieved a record low of 7.4% between September 2014 and August 2015. A record high of 17.1 % was also achieved by the fund between July 2010 and June 2011.

The fund’s lows and highs demonstrate how it is less risky than other investments because it doesn’t experience lows or highs of 50% or more. The fund doesn’t offer high returns but offers stability Due to the fund’s low level of risk, returns on investment are low.

We go further with the fund’s statistics below to show how the fund performs from time to time and the costs that come with it. The fund is discussed in greater detail below.
