BCI GinsGlobal Global Equity Index Feeder Fund (ZAR)

We have launched a ZAR version of the GinsGlobal Global Equity Index Fund B Class – called the BCI GinsGlobal Global Equity Index Feeder Fund. The fund is already growing very fast – with over R900mn under management already.

GinsGlobal Index Funds ( Mauritius) Ltd has been registered in SA since 2001 and our MSCI World benchmarked fund has been our flagship. This Global Equity Index Fund has been used as a core in many Offshore/Fund of Fund solutions. We first received FSCA approval back in 2001 for this Fund (retail version).

• Earlier this year it was ranked amongst the Top 10 best performing SA approved unit trusts over the past 10 years – achieving an 18.7% annualised return (Source: Morningstar to 31 December 2021 – mentioned in your recent Citywire article).

• The Fund’s long track record– shows a very low tracking error and consistent return. It is highly tax efficient as it is a rollup fund, so any dividends are automatically reinvested in the fund resulting in a higher NAV.


• It is sub-advised by State Street Global Advisors, a leader in global index fund management – particularly for the largest sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and global institutions. (Over $4 trillion of assets). Dividends are typically reinvested as soon as received – mostly quarterly.

The Fact Sheet for our offshore Mauritius based fund is attached (Global Equity Index Fund ‘B’ Class). It shows that the fund slightly outperforming its benchmark on a gross basis – due to State Street’s strong global indexing capabilities. These include very efficient use of global tax treaties – helping to further reduce any tracking error. This is particularly important re global dividend payments received.

The fee of the ZAR BCI Feeder Fund is 15bps. The overall TIC is very competitive – at 43 bps annually (inclusive of all fees).

Clients are also able to access the Fund directly via BCI – and Glacier or Momentum LISP platforms
