Moneyweb: The top unit trusts of 2017
South African investors enjoyed a much better year in 2017 than they have for a while. The strong performance of the JSE in the third and fourth quarters meant that by far the majority of local unit trusts delivered inflation-beating returns for the 12 months to December 31.What is particularly interesting about the list of last year’s top performers, however, is how varied it is. It is not dominated by funds from any particular category or strategy. According to figures from Morningstar, the top 20 includes smart beta products, index funds, resource funds, property funds and unit trusts with emerging market and African exposure.
