Collective Investment Schemes in Securities (“CIS”) are generally medium- to long-term investments. The value of participatory interests may go down as well as up and past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. CIS are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. Different classes of units apply to the portfolios and are subject to different fees and charges. A schedule of fees and charges is available on request from Ci. Ci does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of the portfolio. Forward pricing is used. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. International investments may include additional risks such as potential constraints on liquidity and repatriation of funds, macroeconomic risk, political risk, foreign exchange risk, tax risk, settlement risk as well as potential limitations on the availability of market information. The portfolios may be closed from time to time in order to manage it more efficiently in accordance with its mandate. A fund of funds is a portfolio that invests in portfolios of collective investment schemes, which levy their own charges, which could result in a higher fee structure for the fund of funds. The NFB portfolios are portfolios established and administered by Ci, and NFB Asset Management (Pty) Limited has been appointed to manage and market the portfolios. NFB is an indirect shareholder of Ci. As an indirect shareholder, NFB may earn dividends from time to time and participation in any dividends may be linked to the revenue generated by Ci from the NFB portfolios, and from any other Ci portfolios. Ci retains full legal responsibility for the co-named portfolios. Additional information on the portfolios may be obtained, free of charge, directly from NFB or Ci. Ci is an affiliate member of the Association for Savings & Investment SA (ASISA). Total Expense Ratio (TER): The TER % has been annualised and indicates the percentage of the value of the portfolio which was incurred as expenses relating to the administration of the portfolio over the rolling 3-year period or since fund inception, on an annualised basis. A higher TER does not necessarily imply a poor return, nor does a low TER imply a good return. The current TERs cannot be regarded as an indication of future TERs. Transaction Cost (TC): The TC % has been annualised and indicates the percentage of the value of the portfolio which was incurred as costs relating to the buying and selling of the assets underlying the portfolio. TCs are a necessary cost in administering the portfolio and impacts portfolio returns. It should not be considered in isolation as returns may be impacted by many other factors over time including market returns, the type of portfolio, investment decisions of the investment manager and the TER. Total Investment Charge (TIC):The TER plus TC which indicates the percentage of the value of the portfolio which was incurred as costs relating to the investment of the portfolio. Note that all fees are inclusive of VAT. Performance quoted is for lump sum investment with income distributions, prior to deduction of applicable taxes, included. NAV to NAV figures have been used. The annualised return is the return of the performance period re-scaled to a period of one year. Performance is calculated for the portfolio and individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, actual investment date, date of reinvestment and dividend withholding tax.
