Capricorn Sanlam Collective Investments Market Neutral Retail Hedge Fund

A Rand denominated South African long/short equity hedge strategy focused on capital preservation that targets an absolute return in excess of cash. The conservative, counter-cyclical nature of the strategy could result in under-performance during equity bull markets, with above-average performance in equity bear markets.

The Capricorn Sanlam Collective Investments Stable Retail Hedge Fund was the first fund to be launched on the Capricorn Hedge Fund platform managed by Capricorn Fund Managers (Pty) Limited.

It is a purely South African equity long/short hedge strategy, investing exclusively in Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) listed equities and derivatives.

The strategy has a conservative mandate requiring low risk and consistent absolute returns. Investors in the strategy include many of the fund of fund groups in South Africa, large domestic banking groups, major insurers and a number of high net worth individuals.
