Singapore Consortium Investment Management Limited (“SICIM”) aims to deliver a consistent total return to investors through active portfolio management and assets growth. To build a portfolio of assets that will generate steady income and potential capital appreciation, it seeks to identify investments in various asset classes including but not limited to equity, preference shares, debt, options and warrants, across the world, with an eye to diversify across industries, currencies and maturities to manage the investment risks.
To assist in the construction of such a diversified global portfolio, SICIM adopts a variety of investment strategies to achieve an optimal asset allocation. An analysis of the macroeconomic fundamentals of major developed and emerging markets to identify the points of the economic cycle each country or region is in allows SICIM to target the appropriate sectors and industries expected to benefit from their positioning in the economic cycle. Within each sector and industry, the selection of suitable companies for investments is grounded primarily in fundamental analysis, both qualitatively and quantitatively. Once the candidates have been identified, a mix of securities issued by the companies are then targeted to obtain the optimal risk-adjusted returns for the portfolio.

Such fund seeks to mimic as closely as possible, before expenses, the performance of an Index the fund is designed to follow. The types & weights of securities in the portfolio are designed to broadly follow the respective weightings in the index constituents.
