The Raging Bull Awards theme was black tie with a touch of blue, with the aquarium’s tanks of marine life adding a touch of ‘wow’ to the gala event. Guests sipped bubbly while enjoying a brief period of networking; then made their way into smart seating area where a three-course dinner was served in between celebrating the extensive list of supreme industry performers. The past year has not been an easy one for asset managers and investors alike. So our congratulations go out to all the award winners – especially Allan Gray, for being awarded the Raging Bull for the South African Management Company of the Year, and Nedgroup Investments and Investec, who were jointly awarded the Raging Bull for the Offshore Management Company of the Year.

Here is the full list of winners, those marked with an asterisk received a Raging Bull.
