Purpose of report

The overall purpose of this report is to provide insights into our business and our investments beyond just financial returns. We have adopted the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as the topline framework to drive positive outcomes. The report provides an OMAI wide and business unit level view of our ESG approach, our journey so far, our focus areas, current baseline data and what ESG topics we think are important to take note of. We seek to understand our footprint, assess what is possible to change in that footprint, then drive and measure that positive outcome. The data we have collected through 2019 forms a set of baseline data. Going forward we will be tracking against these baselines to assess ESG performance.

Old Mutual Alternative Investments (Pty) Ltd is a licensed FSP 45255, approved by the Financial Sector Conduct Authority to provide advisory and/or intermediary services in terms of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act 37, 2002. Old Mutual Alternative Investments (Pty) Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Old Mutual Investment Group Holdings (Pty) Ltd and is a member of the Old Mutual Investment Group.

Investment portfolios are market-linked. Pooled products are either policy based, via a linked policy of insurance issued by Old Mutual Life Assurance Company of (SA) Ltd, which is a registered Long Term Insurer. Contractual rights and obligations of investors are set out in the relevant investor agreements and or mandates.

Unlisted investments have short term to long term liquidity risks and there are no guarantees on the investment capital nor on performance. It should be noted that investments within the fund may not be readily marketable. It may therefore be difficult for an investor to withdraw from the fund or to obtain reliable information about its value and the extent of the risks to which it is exposed. Market fluctuations and changes in exchange rates as well as taxation may have an effect on the value, price, or income of investments and capital contributions. Since financial markets fluctuate, an investor may not recover the full amount invested. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future investment performance.
