Introducing Amplify Offshore

Amplify Investment Partners has launched its first global equity fund to extend and diversify investment options for its clients.
“This is a natural progression for our fund offering,” says Amplify head Marthinus van der Nest. “We currently have funds that cover mostly the multi asset categories. Many investors are looking to diversify their local exposure and it has not been a space where we have had a fund.”
Amplify has added a dollar-denominated and a rand feeder fund to its existing range of unit trusts and hedge funds. Demand for offshore funds remains strong and changes to Regulation 28, increasing the offshore exposure limit to 45%, have created further opportunities for a good global manager, Van der Nest says.
Amplify’s dollar-denominated fund, launched this month, will be managed by Sarofim & Co, an independent, employee-owned global investment manager dedicated to high conviction, sustainable-growth investing with a 60-year successful long term track record of outperformance while taking lower risk.

Investing for a purpose reaps rewards

Amplify was recently recognised for both its investment performance at this year’s Raging Bull Awards and for its conservation impact at the South African National Parks (SANParks) Kudu Awards.
The Amplify SCI* Wealth Protector fund won the Raging Bull’s best multi asset equity fund on a risk-adjusted basis – the third consecutive year it has won a Raging Bull, reflecting its consistency delivering on its CPI + 3% benchmark and its clients’ expectations. Amplify’s entire range of independently managed unit trusts and hedge funds have performed strongly and continue to attract significant inflows.
The other side of these investment inflows is an allocated portion of the revenue to conservation projects as part of Amplify’s mandate of investing for a future, and for impact.
