Keeping the wealth at home
According to Wikus Fourie, Business Development Manager at Sanlam Namibia Unit Trusts, the new fund invests 100% back into Namibia. “This fund is the first of its kind to invest solely in Namibian assets and gives the investor peace of mind knowing that complying with the 35% local asset rule is now much easier,” he said.
“Another plus of this fund, is that anyone can invest in it, not only large corporates. Individuals can invest from as little as N$200 per month, whilea minimum lump sum of N$2000 will gain you all the benefits Namibia can offer through this investment opportunity,” said Fourie. “By investing in Namibian assets, you invest in the economy of the country in which you live. This allows you to contribute to the growth of the country.”
