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 won awards in the following categories:

• The People’s Choice for the favourite ETF amongst the investing public - Satrix 40 ETF
• Best Total Return Performance, 3 years - Satrix RESI ETF
• Best Trading Efficiency, 3 years - Satrix RESI ETF
• Best ETF Issuer for Capital Raising, 1 year – Satrix Managers


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 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.”



Says Satrix CEO, Helena Conradie “Our focus at Satrix is to enable investment access. We believe that in order to grow and create wealth in South Africa, everyone needs access to financial products that are transparent and easy to understand. Our SatrixNOW online platform has no minimums, and we are thrilled that increasingly investors are seizing the opportunity to “OWN THE MARKET”.

Refinitiv, Profile Data, JSE and are the four independent service providers to the South African Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) industry who have coordinated these annual awards to recognize ETF issuers in various categories.
