TOTAL RETURN PERFORMANCE

In this award category, the focus is on total return performance.

Performance has been measured for a lump sum investment, on a total return, net asset value basis, with distributions reinvested. There are three periods of assessment – three-year total return, five year total return and ten year total return, all to the end of December 2020.

TRACKING EFFICIENCY

This category recognises the efficiency of ETFs to deliver, as close as possible, the performance of their reference index. This is arguably one of the most important metrics by which an index tracker fund should be evaluated. The total return achieved by investing in an ETF over any given period should be as close as possible to the total return of the index over the same period.

The best tracking efficiency measured over three years, in the three asset categories were awarded.
