3 Introduction to Exchange Traded Products

4 Exchange traded products (ETP) - investment vehicles - derive their prices from other instruments - trade intra-day on the JSE. ETP - Exchange traded funds (ETF) & Exchange traded notes (ETN). –First ETP - ETF - launched on JSE In 2000 –First ETN launched in 2010. ETP replicate performance of a specific index / comply with a prescribed investment mandate. Open-ended investment vehicles - securities listed & traded on national stock exchanges. ETPs such as Satrix 40 ETF pool investor funds - cost-effective instruments - gives investors access to a large basket of underlying holdings - such as shares. By purchasing one share (ETF) on the market - gain exposure to the forty best performing companies listed on the JSE / Top companies listed in the financial, industrial & resource sectors. Most ETFs (except NewGold, the largest ETF by market capitalisation) - collective investment schemes / Bound by the regulations governing investment products. What are Exchange Traded Products?

5 ETP Investment Options Exchange Traded Products (ETP) PSG Online Equity Trading Account PSG Online Investment Plan

6 Once-off purchase into an exchange traded product (ETP) investment. The minimum lump-sum investment is R1 000. Monthly debit order - minimum of R300 per fund per investment period. Investment Plan: Requirements

7 Annual fee – 1% (excluding VAT) - total value of portfolio. –Debited monthly to your account. Debit order fees - Charged at R3.50 on all debit orders. Trading fee of 0.1% (excluding VAT) Investor Protection Levy of 0.0002% (excluding VAT) - levied on all transactions. No Securities Transfer Tax (STT) levied on ETFs. –Seen as a Collective Investment Scheme Settlement fee - R12.45 (including VAT) - Charged on all trades per fund per day –The fee is split between the pool of investors who submitted investment instructions for that fund for the day. –If you are the only investor to submit an instruction in a fund for the day, you will be charged the full R12.45 (including VAT) settlement fee; –Alternatively you will be charged the proportional amount depending on the number of investors. Investment Plan: Costs

8 Diversification - Wide range of ETFs and ETNs - track domestic & foreign equity indices - commodity-based indices - property indices- 'style' & fundamental indices, as well as bonds & multi-asset portfolios. Liquidity - ETFs and ETNs are actively traded, ensuring their liquidity. Accessibility - ETFs and ETNs traded using a PSG Online share trading account or via the PSG Online ETP Investment Plan account - Once-off transaction or monthly debit orders. Flexibility - PSG Online offers you access to a wide range of ETPs from a number of different ETP providers, including ABSA, Deutsche, RMB, Nedbank, Proptrax, Investec, Standard Bank & SATRIX. Cost Effective - ETFs and ETNs acquired with relatively low entry level investments & low cost structures. Some ETNs have no entry level minimums & no formal annual fees, while others do. Most ETNs do not pay dividends. Transparency - ETF and ETN owners can track the value of their investments on a day-to-day basis.Advantages

9 ETFs and ETNs - sold as cost effect investments. Prospective investors should be aware of the relative costs: –Initial fees, –Annual fees, and –Re-investment costs of different investment options. Investors can either invest in ETFs & ETNs through an investment plan / Direct through a stockbroker. –PSG Online offers both options. Performances of index trackers - generally better investments in upward trending markets. –Bottom up, actively managed stock pickers generally outperform relative to index-based products in sideways trending market. Exchange traded fund (ETF) investors receive dividends ETN investors generally do not receive dividends.Disadvantages

10 Exchange Traded Funds (ETF)

11 Similar to unit trusts - invest in a group or basket of holdings - rather than a single share or bond. Like unit trusts, ETFs are open ended - there are no fixed amount of units in a fund. ETF designed to track a wide range of instruments –Actively managed growth portfolios –Fixed interest portfolios. –Optimum mixed asset-type portfolios. ETF are passively managed - Shares in respective funds traded actively intra-day. ETFs listed on a stock exchange / Offer the same benefits as share trading. Investments valued at prevailing market prices / Can be redeemed at any time. ETF dividends & interest can be automatically reinvested. What are Exchange Traded Funds?

12 ETFs marketed to investors requiring exposure to different asset types as a cheap & safe way to invest in local and international markets. –Not all ETFs are cheaper than all collective investments. –Not all ETFs' underlying assets or holdings are suitable for all investors. Only 20% of SA unit trusts beat their benchmark indices over the past 1 to 7-years / Strong argument to consider the case for passive instruments such as ETFs. –As of December 2012, 38 ETFs listed on the JSE –Most registered as collective investments. –The biggest funds, by market cap- NewGold & Satrix 40. ETFs represent less than 4% of assets under management of the collective investments industry - but growing. Exchange Traded Funds (ETF)

13 ETF’s underlying net asset value (NAV) - calculated by taking the current value of the fund’s net assets (the value of all securities inside minus liabilities) / Divided by the total number of shares outstanding. –NAV published every 15-seconds. –Traditional unit trust fund - NAV is set at the end day. –ETF’s NAV is not necessarily its market price. Determined by supply & demand. ETF’s market price can differ from its NAV. The way ETFs are structured keeps the gap tight. ETF NAV

14 Price Determination - Unlike collective investments, ETF can be bought/ sold intra-day/ Do not have to wait until the end of the day before knowing the price of the investment. Large & liquid - Large ETFs able to minimise costs on a per unit basis / Able to produce a better total return. –Optimally, the shares that the ETF invests into should also be large & liquid to reduce costs. Suitable as a DIY approach - While some investment products have pricing structures which assume the use of a financial advisor / ETF investors do not require a financial advisor. –ETFs purchased directly do not incur annual management fees. No Securities Transfer Tax (STT) levied on ETFs traded through the JSE. Asset Classes - Previously closed / Allow for easy expression of a macro view / Makes investing simpler & quicker. Experienced investors use ETFs to express an investment view, while 'hedging' a possible downside of this view. –Strong relative view on a particular share or sector can exercise that view by taking the opposite exposure in a broad-based market ETF. –Thinks that resources shares will underperform - sell resources shares & Buy an ETF on the broad market / Hedge against the overall market movement. Advantages of investing in ETFs

15 ETF costs might not in fact be as low as first assumed. –Fees & costs discussed elsewhere in this presentation. Be mindful of the index tracked by way of an ETF. –The JSE Top 40 index, for example, which is tracked by the SATRIX 40, is extremely concentrated. At their respective peaks, Anglo American was 15% of the index & BHP Billiton 12%. ETFs enable & possibly facilitate 'investor herding‘ - Tendency that created investment bubbles' for centuries. –ETFs can channel investments into sectors / Can speed up markets & encourage short-termism which some commentators fear could lead to market instability. There is a time & place for ETFs in client portfolios but investors need to understand the advantages & disadvantages before investing. Disadvantages of investing in ETFs

16 Loosely categorised or grouped into: Index Tracking ETFs –Broad Market (Top 40) –JSE Sector Exposure –Bond (Fixed Interest) ETFs –Floating Interest Rate ETFs –Property ETFs –'Smart' or 'Style' ETFs –Multi-Asset or Balanced ETFs –Foreign ETFs Fundamental ETFs Commodity ETFs ETFs available in South Africa

17 Most ETFs are index trackers –Reflect the performance of chosen index: Top 40 Index, Industrial 25 Index, Financial 15 Index, and Resources 10 Index. Two property ETFs –Proptrax SAPY –Proptrax TEN. Main selling point for many people is the cost. Index Tracking ETFs

18 There are currently two bond trackers: The zShares GOVI ETF The BIPS Inflation Linked ETF Bond (Fixed Interest) ETFs

19 Market is moving towards "smart" passive funds. Do not only track JSE indices - Seek to include & capture other factors - determine long term performance of a range of asset classes. –For example, the Satrix Divi Plus fund, provides investors with access to a portfolio of 30 shares chosen by the JSE, based on projected dividend paying potential. JSE uses consensus forecast of the investment industry analysts - Identify 30 out of the top 100 shares - best forecasted dividend returns for next year. 'Smart' or 'Style' ETFs

20 Multi-Asset ETFs invest in a number of assets, including: –Equities, –Bonds, –Cash, and –Money market. Aim to replicate asset allocation unit trusts - favourite among investors - diversify assets Much cheaper - Maximum of 0.8% for retail investors / Compared to similar unit trusts = 2%. Balanced or Multi-Asset ETFs

56 Level of Assets: To be considered a viable investment choice, an ETF should have a minimum level of assets or market capitalisation – The smaller the ETF, the more likely it will have a limited degree of investor interest - Translates into poor liquidity & wide bid/offer spreads. Trading Activity: An investor needs to check if the ETF that is being considered, trades in sufficient volume on a daily basis / Trading volume - excellent indicator of liquidity, regardless of the asset class. The higher the trading volume for an ETF, the more liquid it is likely to be & the tighter the bid-ask spread. Important considerations when it is time to exit the ETF Underlying Index or Asset: Consider the underlying index or asset class on which the ETF is based. From the point of view of diversification, it may be preferable to invest in an ETF that is based on a broad, widely followed index, rather than an obscure index that has a narrow industry or geographic focus. Market Position: "First-mover advantage" is important in the ETF world - Decent probability of garnering the lion's share of assets, before others jump on the bandwagon. Prudent to avoid ETFs that are mere imitations of an original idea / They may not differentiate themselves from their rivals & attract investors' assets. How to Pick the Right ETF? Source:

57 Exchange Traded Notes (ETN)

58 ETNs share some characteristics with ETFs - Differ in structure. –Both have low market entry barriers –Allow you to track index-based commodity prices on the JSE. ETNs are debt instruments & not equity instruments. –Investors do not own the underlying commodities, –Do not receive dividends. ETN are unsecured senior debt note issued by a bank or financial institution. The underwriting institution has an obligation to pay the holder of the JSE listed ETN security a return linked to the performance of the underlying asset, security or benchmark. Despite ETNs being debt instruments they do not offer capital protection. ETNs are non-interest paying debt obligations. ETN prices fluctuate with the price of the commodity or holdings they track & the redemption price is based on the underlying commodity price or share price. Exchange traded notes are not Collective Investment Schemes. ETNs are regulated by the JSE ETNs are subject to the solvency & credit rating of the issuer. ETNs are exempt from Securities Transfer Tax (STT) but Capital Gains Tax (CGT) & income tax may or may not be levied depending on the circumstances of individual investors. What are Exchange Traded Notes?

59 First launched by Barclays Capital, ETNs are senior, unsecured & unsubordinated debt securities. ETNs are effectively debt products similar to bonds - Performance is linked to an underlying security, basket of securities or index. The ETN 'promise' is dependent on the financial strength of its issuer (guarantor) to have the money available when the investor wishes to sell the investment. Investors should therefore take the credit risk of the issuer into account before investing in an ETN. –If ABSA goes bankrupt, the investor may not receive the return they were promised. As with similar investment products such as unit trusts or ETFs, no principal protection or guarantees are offered. The guarantor of the investment may or may not actually invest in the pre-determined index. In SA, ETNs are not independently rated & rely on the credit of issuer. Any change in the rating of the issuer could affect market price of ETN. Exchange Traded Notes (ETN)

60 Cost-efficient & highly liquid - Bought or sold at any point in time during JSE trading hours. Provide exposure to a portfolio of products - Single investment. ETNs provide convenience of trading a single share that represents a basket of underlying holdings. ETN indices are transparent, calculated & published daily. ETNs provide investors with access to new markets - Opportunities for diversification. Advantages of investing in ETNs

61 Like all equity based investments - Investing in ETNs might result in a loss for the investor. ETNs are debt securities - Do not have any voting rights Investors do not receive dividends. Disadvantages of investing in ETNs
