80 Percent of Active Investment Managers Continue to Underperform Their Benchmark Index 24 Apr 2018
Latest data from the end-March 2018 Quarterly Collective Investment Schemes Performance Survey, shows that, on average, 80% or more of general equity unit trusts and other collective investment schemes (ETFs), fail to produce total investment returns above the FTSE/JSE All Share Index.
Furthermore, of the funds that did outperform the index, increasingly such index beating returns were produced by index tracking products, rather than typical active stock selecting asset managers.

The Continued Top Performance by Index Tracking Funds 17 Apr 2018
We have pointed out in previous articles, the outstanding record of passive index tracking collective investment schemes, in delivering comparable total return investment performance to actively managed unit trusts, over multiple time periods.
As the appended investment return top five table shows, index tracking ETFs and unit trusts appear regularly in the top five performers of all 1300 collective investment schemes in South Africa. Index tracking passive investment strategies, obviously do not mean accepting lower investment returns, as these products more than compete with the best performing funds in the South African industry.

State of the South African Exchange Traded Product (ETP) Industry as at 29 March 2018 10 Apr 2018
Market Capitalisation
The Market Capitalisation of all Exchange Traded Products, listed on the JSE, was R80,2 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2018. This is a fall of some R5 billion, or 5,7%, on the market capitalisation of the ETP industry at the end of 2017.
The drop in total market capitalisation was largely function of the general decline in the SA equity markets over the first quarter of this year.
However, some significant redemptions in commodity based ETPs took place over the past 3 months – the Absa Bank commodity ETFs redeemed over R2,2 billion and the Standard Bank commodity ETPs R882 million in capital over this period.

State of the South African Exchange Traded Product (ETP) Industry as at 31 December 2017 11 Jan 2018
Market Capitalisation
The total market capitalisation of the 82 ETFs/ETNs, listed on the JSE, as at 31 December 2017, was R85 billion. This constituted an increase of 14,7% on the market capitalisation of all ETPs, at the end of 2016.
Following 3 years of relative stagnation, between 2014 and 2016, when the total market capitalisation of the ETPs listed on the JSE, remained pegged below R80 billion, the rise in the size of the industry in 2017 was most encouraging. The number of ETPs in issue also rose from 73 at the end of 2016 to 82 at the end of 2017.
