It also has a young, growing population of over one billion. The African stock markets are small but growing fast. Companies are under researched and markets show very little correlation but investors are showing increased appetite for this final frontier.

The FMG Africa Fund provides access to the fastest growing parts of Africa, thus differentiating itself from traditional Africa funds which largely focus on South Africa and offshore listed companies with operations in Africa. The investment objective is to achieve long term capital appreciation from underlying portfolios of equities, predominantly listed in Sub-Saharan Africa. The fund utilizes a multi-manager approach, providing diversification geographically and among industry sectors.

Managers are selected based on their proven expertise in African equities. The fund is actively managed, with FMG applying both a top down macro and a long term quantitative model to determine allocations, including cash levels. FMG considers risk management an integral element of the portfolio management process. The opportunistic nature of the fund targets investors with a higher risk-reward return profile.
