 Old Mutual Investment Group wins again at Raging Bull Awards

 

Cape Town, 28 January 2016: Old Mutual Investment Group went home with two Raging Bull Awards from last night’s ceremony against a challenging market backdrop, with the Old Mutual Global Equity Fund and Old Mutual International Growth Fund of Funds walking away with top accolades.

The Old Mutual Global Equity Fund took two wins at the Awards ceremony hosted in Cape Town last night. For the fourth year in a row, the Fund was awarded Top Performance by a Domestic Collective Investment Scheme for the three-year period ended 31 December 2015 for Best (SA-Domiciled) Global Equity General Fund. It was also recognised with a certificate for the Best Performance on the basis of Risk-adjusted Returns by a Domestic Collective Investment Scheme for the five-year period ended 31 December 2015 in the category (SA Domiciled) Global Equity General. 

The Old Mutual International Growth Fund of Funds received a certificate for the Top Performance by a Domestic Collective Investment Scheme for the three-year period ended 31 December 2015 in the category (SA-Domiciled) Global Multi-Asset Flexible. 

The Old Mutual Global Equity Fund, managed by Ian Heslop, Amadeo Alentorn and Mike Servent at Old Mutual Global Investors in the UK, has returned 40.1% over three years to end of December 2015 compared to the MSCI World Index at 34.7% over the same period, and 32% over five years to end of December 2015 versus the Index at 28.3%. The Old Mutual International Growth Fund of Funds, managed by Lee Freeman-Shor and Anthony Gillham at Old Mutual Global Investors, returned 30% versus the Composite Index (70% MSCI World Index & 30% JP Morgan Global Traded Index) at 30.2% over three years to end December 2015. 

The Raging Bull Awards recognises the stars of the collective investment or unit trust industry in terms of top outright performers, best risk-adjusted performers and the best unit trust management companies. The awards cover domestic (South African-domiciled) and offshore funds, which are funds not domiciled in South Africa but approved by the Financial Services Board for marketing to South African investors. 

“These awards are testament to the depth of our global footprint and the skill of our teams at both Old Mutual Investment Group and Old Mutual Global Investors,” said Janina Slawski, Director of Marketing and Distribution at Old Mutual Investment Group. “The industry has been facing an increasingly challenging investment environment and we are proud that our investment teams are managing to bring value to investors against this backdrop.”
