Old Mutual Unit Trust Managers disclaimer

The below disclaimer refers to the Old Mutual Institutional Short Term Interest Fund specifically.

We aim to treat our clients fairly by giving you the information you need in as simple a way as possible to enable you to make informed decisions about your investments.

  1. We believe in the value of sound advice and so recommend that you consult a financial adviser before buying or selling unit trusts. You may however, buy and sell without the help of a financial adviser. If you do use a financial adviser, we remind you that they are entitled to certain negotiable adviser fees or commissions.
  2. The fees and costs that we charge for managing your investment are accessible on the relevant fund’s minimum disclosure document (MDD) or table of fees and charges both available on our public website or from our service centre.
  3. You should ideally see unit trusts as a medium to long term investment. The fluctuations of particular investment strategies affect how a fund performs. Your fund value may go up or down. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the investment capital or return of your investment. How a fund has performed in the past does not necessarily indicate how it will perform in the future.
  4. Our cut-off time for client instructions (e.g. buying and selling) is at 13:00 each working day. We value the fund at 15:00 to determine the daily ruling price. Daily prices are available on the public website and in the media.
  5. Funds may borrow to pay client disinvestments and may engage in scrip lending.
  6. The daily ruling price is based on the current market value of the fund’s assets plus income minus expenses (NAV of the portfolio) divided by the number of units in issue. Old Mutual Unit Trusts has the right to close a portfolio to new investors in order to manage it more efficiently in accordance with its mandate.
  7. Old Mutual Unit Trust Managers (RF) (Pty) Ltd is a registered manager in terms of the Collective Investment Scheme Control Act 45 of 2002. Old Mutual is a member of the Association for Savings and Investment South Africa (ASISA).
