The second annual South African Listed Tracker Funds Awards (SALTA) was held at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange on 22 May 2019 and Satrix was awarded top spot in four categories on the night.
SATRIX AWARDS SALTA 2019:
SATRIX 40 - THE FAVOURITE ONCE AGAIN
Winning the “The People’s Choice” award for the second year running is a huge honour for Satrix. The public voted via online poll and the Satrix 40 ETF proved to be the favourite ETF among South African investors.
Satrix listed the very first ETF on the JSE in November 2000. The Satrix 40 ETF has been a flagship Satrix fund ever since, offering investors local equity exposure at a low cost.
Nerina Visser, ETF strategist and director at etfSA.co.za comments “The Satrix brand is to the SA ETF industry what the Hoover is to vacuum cleaners – in the eye of “the people”, Satrix IS ETFs, and the Satrix 40 ETF their overwhelming favourite. It remains the largest domestic equity ETF by a considerable margin and is also the ETF with the broadest investor base. It is therefore no surprise that it was recognised by popular vote as the “People’s Choice”, supported with numerous stories of the impact it has had in changing ordinary people’s lives for the better.”
