The Endless Summer
We have created an entirely new wave of retirement savings solutions. A wave of solutions perfectly shaped to serve all your needs – before and after you retire.
Welcome to the Sygnia Umbrella Retirement Fund. Welcome to SURF.
SURF is a revolutionary umbrella fund that offers leading-edge benefit design, clear and transparent pricing and sophisticated technology-driven administration to deliver the most innovative retirement savings solution in South Africa.
Pioneering benefit structure
In a first for the South African retirement funds industry, SURF offers both in-fund preservation and in-fund annuitisation. Now members can seamlessly retain their SURF membership on resignation or retirement and continue to benefit from institutional rather than retail investment fees. As a default, members are offered a unique SURF-For-Life Annuity on retirement, which combines the income security of a with-profit annuity with the flexibility of a living annuity. We were voted Imbasa Yegolide Asset Manager of the year for 2016.
Superior investment performance
SURF offers a range of top-performing multi-manager and index-tracking investment portfolios, and two default life-stage models. According to the Alexander Forbes Multi-Manager Watch Survey, our flagship balanced portfolio range performed top of its class over 3 and 5 years and has considerably outperformed the comparable peer group life-stage portfolios.
One all-in participation fee
Unlike most of our competitors SURF charges a single all-in-one participation fee equivalent to typical umbrella fund investment fees. We charge no administration fees and no consulting fees.
This means that in many instances SURF is more than 50% less expensive than its closest competitor. In order to determine the fees that apply to your participation in SURF please consult our SURF Fee Disclosure.
