A unit trust fund is an investment product that pools the money of many investors to invest in assets like shares, bonds and listed property. Instead of having to pick individual investments yourself, a unit trust offers you exposure to a range of assets, which are selected and managed by investment professionals. It is an easy and convenient way to invest your money.
Yes, Coronation manages money on behalf of millions of South Africans and we take this responsibility very seriously. Coronation Asset Management is an authorised financial service provider, and Coronation Management Company is a licensed manager of collective investment schemes. The value of your investment will fluctuate depending on the prevailing market prices of the underlying investments in the fund.
We highly recommend that you remain invested for the long term to get the maximum benefit from both our investment approach and compound interest. You can, however, withdraw part or all of your investment whenever you want.
If you elect for Coronation to collect the investment amount from your bank account by way of a once off debit order (electronic collection), we will apply a restriction on your ability to withdraw these funds for the first 40 days as debit orders can be reversed within 40 days. If you elect to do an EFT, there is a 7-day clearance period. This protects both you and us from fraud.
You can withdraw the full value of your investment at the value which is calculated daily.
