FOR INVESTORS WHO :
- SME’s and start up organizations.
We expect the Umbrella Fund to continue registering strong performance, owing to prudent investment in asset classes based on market conditions and expectations.
The fixed income market remains attractive to investors as returns in other investment classes remain subdued. We expect rates to maintain the current levels or gradually make minimal increases in 2021, with the treasury bidding to lengthen our debt maturity profile.
The equity market outlook for 2021 remains uncertain as downside risks prevail in light of an unrelenting pandemic.
