Prescient Eqty Active Quant B2

"The fund aims to achieve returns above the FTSE/JSE Africa Shareholder Weighted Total Return Index (SWIX) by investing in shares that offer value relative to its trading price. The fund uses quantitative techniques (multi-factor model) to build an active equity portfolio which aims to generate superior performance in a structured manner. The equity selection is done purely quantitatively on a bottom-up basis. The selection process targets those shares that offer the best economic value according to predefined income statement, cashflow statement and balance sheet matrices. To enhance equity selection further, behavioural and other quantitative techniques are used. The quantitative process maintains some positive index type characteristics, such as low turnover and thus lower cost and high liquidity."
