World Axis Fund Range
Offshore investing made simple
We look for the very best among the world’s leading fund managers to create a global, well-diversified portfolio for you designed to generate growth over the long term.
Diversifying your portfolio
Our World Axis Fund Range of unit trusts embraces diversity across geographies and asset classes. We find and invest with the best global fund managers in their fields of expertise. We then pool these to create a well-diversified portfolio for you. This ensures that we reduce regional, industry and currency risks, while generating long-term returns.
Getting the numbers - and people - right
Not all fund managers are created equal. With thousands of fund managers to choose from, deciding on the right ones to manage your capital requires skill. The World Axis Fund Range was launched in 2005, which means we’ve spent over 13 years building a network of the best funds and fund managers for your portfolio.
Backed by a global investment approach
Investec's global perspective means you benefit from an investment strategy that draws on the input of professionals in the UK, South Africa, Hong Kong and Guernsey. Through this process, they determine the overall amount of risk we take. This guides our asset allocation which we then combine with our fund manager selection.
