      Offshore investing

      The South African stock market represents less than 1% of the global economy which limits those invested exclusively in SA to just a fraction of the global equity market. A well-diversified portfolio should include offshore exposure that will give investors access to various growth opportunities across geographies, economies, and sectors. 

      Most local unit trust companies offer a range of funds and solutions with an offshore/global component, either by taking advantage of offshore exposure limits or by investing in global economies via an asset swap. Unit Trusts are a low cost and less administrative option to invest offshore when compared to investing in foreign currency via offshore platforms. 

      At Old Mutual Unit Trusts, we offer a wide variety of solutions with offshore exposure via both of these options. We have a variety of investment options, such as: 

      - Active and index/passive funds 
      - Listed equities, multi-asset, quants-based, foreign currency exposure 
      - Emerging markets and developed markets
