Third in the five-year category was Coronation's Managed portfolio with a return of 16.8% per annum.

Allan Gray also showed the best investment yield achieved in the longer ten-year investment periods. They returned 22,3% per annum.

Foord & Meintjies was the runner-up in the ten-year category with returns of 22% per annum.

Third place in the ten-year investment period went to Investec Segregated with returns of 16.9% per annum.

In the aggressive category, Sage Life Managed Growth returned 15.8% over the past year and Old Mutual Profile Capital came out tops in the conservative category with a return of 15.3% per annum.
