Coronation receives accolades at POA awards ceremony

20 July 2012 - Coronation Insights

Coronation Fund Managers was honoured with a total of four awards at the annual Imbasa Yegolide Awards ceremony, hosted by the Principal Officers’ Association on Monday, 11 June. The awards are aimed at rewarding professional excellence by recognising service providers who have delivered excellent service to the South African retirement fund industry.

Coronation was voted Equities Manager of the Year for the third consecutive year, and Overall Investment/Asset Manager of the Year for the second time since the inception of these awards four years ago. In addition, Coronation was voted Absolute Returns Manager of the Year and Bond Manager of the Year.

Kirshni Totaram, Head of Institutional Business at Coronation comments: “We are both delighted and humbled to have received the top Imbasa Yegolide Award in each of the categories for which our clients have nominated us.”

According to Totaram the aim of these awards is closely aligned with Coronation’s commitment to always putting clients first, and their investment philosophy of investing for the long-term. “At Coronation we know that without clients we do not have a business. This core truth has anchored our business since we started in 1993. Thus, to receive these awards from nominations made by our clients makes the recognition all the more rewarding.

In closing, Totaram says: “For the last 19 years we have worked hard to earn our clients’ trust, supported by the strength of our long-term investment track record across both our unit trust funds and institutional portfolios. We owe our success directly to our loyal and trusted clients, and look forward to continuing to provide the high-quality service and investment returns that our clients have come to expect from us.”
