Sasfin Asset Managers won the Best South African Interest-Bearing Short-Term Fund for its BCI High Yield Fund at the 27th edition of the prestigious Raging Bull Awards in Cape Town yesterday.
Since its establishment in 1997, the Raging Bull Awards have been a key event on the South African investment sector calendar. The awards are of great importance to financial services regulators, and investment industry organisations. Essentially, the awards recognize funds and managers who have consistently demonstrated their talents.
Speaking on the win, Portfolio Manager, Raphi Rootshtain said; ‘As much as we love winning awards, our purpose and passion is to provide a compelling risk-adjusted investment for our clients. Any award is an affirmation that we are doing a good job which makes us extremely proud and gives our clients the confidence and peace of mind to continue their journey with us. For the business it is just amazing to think how much we have achieved in such a short time and how we are punching well above our weight in an exceptionally competitive industry’.
The BCI High Yield Fund was formed in July 2019 as an investment vehicle for investors seeking a high-income, high-liquidity fund with consistent returns. Notably, the fund was the top performing in its category for 2021, and it has been first since its launch. I think this speaks for itself. We are grateful we can provide clients with a wonderful income solution that is developing a great track record as low volatility, high yielding fund that offers excellent capital protection.
