MiPlan wins a Manager of the Year Raging Bull award – and the MiPlan IP Global Macro Fund win its 3rd consecutive Raging Bull

MiPlan along with Allan Gray (1st)  and PSG (2nd)  were awarded the Managers of the Year awards for 2018, recognising “the unit trust managers with the most impressive performance across their family of funds over 5 years to December 31 2018 and taking into account performance, risk management and consistency, based on the highest average PlexCrown weighting for the suite of funds per major asset class managed by the manager, with weights applied to each asset class “.

What is very pleasing is the recognition of consistent performance across MiPlan’s broad range of products with the following nominations and awards:

  • For the 3rd year running the MiPlan IP Global Macro Fund won the Raging Bull for the best SA Domiciled Global Multi Asset Flexible Fund.
  • The MiPlan IP Global Macro Fund, together with Global IP Opportunity Fund, was ranked in the top 3 funds in the SA-Domiciled Global Multi-Asset Flexible Sector for straight performance over three years to December 31, 2018.
  • The MiPlan IP Inflation Plus 7 Fund was ranked in the top 3 funds in the South African Multi-Asset Medium Equity sector for risk-adjusted performance over five years to December 31, 2018

Looking at the 10-year performance numbers across a full range of funds shows this consistent performance has been well established over all periods. Congratulations to Tony Bell, and Rowan Williams – Short, and also to our unit trust administration company IP Management Company which collected 5 Raging Bull awards across all its managers.

Financial advisers often cite the biggest contribution to a client’s financial wellbeing as being the ability to manage investor psychology. Looking at where the industry assets are invested against this year’s Raging Bulls award winners, could introduce an interesting debate!

Thank you to our loyal supporters and investors. Hopefully you are as delighted with our asset managers’ commitment and success as we are.
