RANMORE GLOBAL EQUITY FUND TRIPLES ASSETS UNDER MANAGEMENT OVER THE PAST YEAR TO $220M

London and Cape Town, 8th April 2024, Ranmore Fund Management, the UK-based global equity Value manager, saw the Ranmore Global Equity Fund surpass $200 million AUM for the first time in March 2024. Ranmore Global Equity Fund plc’s USD Investor class has been rated 5 Crowns by FE fundinfo and 5 Stars by Morningstar, assigned to the top 10% of funds.

 

Meanwhile, the BCI Ranmore Global Value Equity Feeder Fund has reached R656 million thanks to the partnership with the Cape Town-based Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) manager Boutique Collective Investments (BCI). 

 

Management of Ranmore’s South African feeder fund moved across to the BCI platform in March 2023.

 

Sean Peche, Portfolio Manager at Ranmore, commented,

 

“We are delighted that our Global Equity Fund has crossed the $200 million AUM mark as we continue to attract new UK and SA wealth manager clients. Importantly, our largest wealth manager client represents less than 10% of our total assets, ensuring minimal client concentration risk, while the growth in assets continues to reduce our run rate TER / OCF.”

 

“Additionally, the success and substantial growth in assets of the R656m BCI feeder fund makes it a very important component of the R4.2bn Ranmore Global Equity Fund. BCI have been fabulous partners, as we have seen a 48x increase in feeder fund assets invested in Ranmore Global Equity Fund since BCI took over. We’re fortunate to work with such an effective and efficient organisation to make global equity investing so accessible for South Africans. Having partners like BCI provides us with the freedom to remain focused on our only objective – attempting to generate excellent real returns for our clients.”, said Peche.

 

Robert Walton, Chief Executive Officer at Boutique Collective Investments, commented, 

 

"We are thrilled to have helped Ranmore to reach this milestone. We look forward to continued success and growth in our collaboration.”

The Morningstar Rating is an assessment of a fund’s past performance – based on both return and risk – which shows how similar investments compare with their competitors. A high rating alone is insufficient basis for an investment decision. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk- Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, lo ads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
