The local Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) industry attracted net annual inflows of R213 billion in 2020 – the highest ever in the 55-year history of the industry.

This should not come as a surprise as these portfolios have been the best performing ‘asset class’ in the local market over the past three to five years.
