FTSE/JSE Industrial 25 Index
The FTSE/JSE Industrial 25 index provide a focused portfolio of shares in the industrial, retail and manufacturing sectors of the South African economy.

This improving performance reflects the gradual shift in the SA economy towards a more competitive production and manufacturing sector, aided by the macro-economic discipline and low inflation environments. The current and future emphasis on job provision and infrastructure capacity-building, indicates that industrially orientated companies might continue to perform well in the years ahead.

The Industrial 25 index contains no mining, financial and resource based shares and therefore provides a focused entry to the domestic South African economy. It also contains a number of middle-capitalisation companies that do not qualify for the Top 40 index, and therefore helps spread the exposure of the investors to some of the better performing smaller shares on the JSE.

The three year performance of the Satrix INDI has been outstanding at 30.11% return per annum. The Satrix INDI has continued delivering good performance over the past year with a return of 20.33% for the year.

Low Cost

Satrix Indi does not charge substantial management fees or other advisory and ongoing costs, common to other managed investments. The income Satrix earns from scrip lending activities further reduces the cost to the investor.

There are two levels of costs that will be incurred by the investor. The first being portfolio expenses and the second being fees that you will incur depending on the investors preferred channel of investment.

Portfolio expenses
Portfolio expenses include fees incurred to run the Satrix Indi portfolio such as management fees paid to Satrix Managers, custodian fees, brokerage, auditor’s fees, bank charges and taxes.
All these fees are permissible deductions from the portfolio and are paid from the dividends that accrue to the portfolio (from the underlying shares in the portfolio) and the other income that accrues to the portfolio (interest and scrip lending income). The balance of the income remaining in the fund after deduction of the permissible fees and costs referred to above is distributed to the holders of the Satrix securities. This distribution is done on a quarterly basis.

Therefore the portfolio expenses are incurred by the investor when the distribution is paid out. For investors to be informed of this cost on a quarterly basis, the unit trust industry uses the concept of a total expense ratio (TER). TER is used to illustrate the costs of portfolios on a comparative basis. Its objective is to endeavour to satisfy the requirement of transparency and to establish an industry standard. The TER of the Satrix Indi for the quarter ended 31 March 2012 is 0.456% (incl. VAT).

In accordance with the industry standard, brokerage and scrip lending income are excluded from the TER. Satrix accordingly also publishes an actual expense ratio (AER), which includes brokerage expenses and scrip lending income. 

Satrix Investment Plan and broker fees
Broker fees, financial advisor fees (applicable if a financial advisor has been consulted) and Satrix Investment Plan fees are costs that will be incurred by the investor depending on the investors preferred channel of investment and does not include the portfolio expenses as set out above.
