Industry News


The Sir John Ross Strategy follows a quantitative style, investing in the top 180 most liquid shares of the JSE. The strategy combines our momentum approach with a long/short style aimed at a net exposure of between 80%-100%. A short exposure of 40% will be adjusted for adverse market conditions. This strategy was developed to outperform the FTSE/JSE Top 40 with significantly less volatility by minimising the effects of drawdowns.

The short strategy includes antimomentum shares together with additional proprietary statistical indicators.

  • Management Fee: 1.2%
  • Performance Fee: 20% above the benchmark
  • Fee Differentiator: Performance fees accrued therefore remain at risk to future performance


This fund is suitable to:

  • This strategy is suitable to sophisticated investors seeking maximum returns at significantly less risk than the market;
  • Investors who have an investment horizon of at least two years; and
  • especially suited to institutional investors that seek exposure to a unique long-short equity momentum investment style.
