NewFunds MAPPS™ is a uniquely designed portfolio range of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that, unlike traditional ETFs, allow investors to purchase a single security on the JSE and have access to the performance of numerous asset classes including; South African equities, nominal bonds, inflation-linked bonds and cash or allowable money market instruments.

The MAPPS™ Protect ETF has a lower allocation to South African equities (40%) and is aimed at investors with a shorter time horizon(e.g. closer to retirement) and a lower tolerance for return variability and would prefer a more stable return stream.
