Sygnia Asset Management announced in March its purchase of db X-trackers from Deutsche Group Holdings for R325 million.
The asset manager on Wednesday announced that it now has the relevant regulatory approval.
The db X-trackers offer investors access to international investments through a South Africa-regulated structure.
This means far less complexity and negates the need to obtain approval to take assets offshore.
