  • The JSE just made a R100 billion error
  • The JSE just made a R100 billion error
    Until Sunday 24 July 2016, economists, local and international investors were investing under a false notion that foreign investors bought South African equities to the value of nearly R100 billion. Economists were mostly baffled by the figures being reported by the JSE. They could not understand why so many investors were buying up such a large portion of South African listed companies. Some ... ››› more

  • Invest R1,200 a year and collect a 25% bonus for your children's education
  • Invest R1,200 a year and collect a 25% bonus for your children's education
    Earlier this week I spoke to a new parent who only earns R8,000 a month. With a three month old baby, she was concerned that she wouldn't have enough money for her child's education when the time came to send the child to school. She could only afford to save R1,200 a year for her child's education and put her first lump sum savings into a 32 day savings account that gave her a measly 5% inter... ››› more

  • Three reasons you should attend shareholder meetings
    If you think every company shareholder meeting involves as much pomp and ceremony as Berkshire Hathaway, think again. These meetings are long, they could be boring but they are essential for shareholders. These meetings are not just reserved for the executive team or those investors with hundreds and thousands of shares in the company. If you're invested, you have a right to go... But firs... ››› more

    The other day, while making my morning coffee, a work colleague asked me about an opportunity to earn an 11.5% return on a fixed-term bond investment. And she wasn't talking about RSA Government Retail Bonds. She was talking about investing in a Participation Bond Fund, specifically the FedGroup Participation Bond Fund. When you invest in a Participation Bond Fund, money is pooled with oth... ››› more

  • Three great ways to invest your money in 2016/17
    Nothing could prepare investors for the volatility that we've seen in the markets in recent months. It's been interesting to watch the economy dodge junk status, the JSE tank under Brexit and investors scramble around trying their best to find investment opportunities. The good news is, just because the financial markets are going crazy, doesn't meant there are no opportunities for your to pro... ››› more

  • Can the SA economy or your pocket handle another increase in maize prices?
    The drought that's battering Southern Africa right now is going to wreak havoc on your pockets in the near future. South African corn farmers are expected to produce the lowest maize produce in 8 years. The last time production numbers were this low was in 2008. The numbers are concerning and it seems that South Africa will have to drastically increase the amount of maize it imports to 3.8... ››› more

  • 11 reasons why this young man has all the characteristics of a master investor
    Three years ago, I walked into the FSPInvest boardroom. Seated at the freshly polished mahogany table in front of me were six specially selected investment interns. These were some of the brightest investment minds the management team at FSPInvest could find in South Africa. They just passed a rigorous interview process that earned them the right to be an intern at the FSP Invest office. All o... ››› more

  • Nobody's talking about it, but Platinum excites me more than Gold right now!
    The gold price hit $1,354. It's the first time that it's above $1,300 since 2014! That's big news. And since the Brexit, all you hear is how investors are fleeing to the safety of gold. But I'm much more excited about another precious metal right now. I'm talking about platinum of course… The platinum price started 2016 at $820/ounce. Today it's trading $280 higher at $1,100 per ounc... ››› more

If you have enough money, you can invest in anything you want. But the successes you achieve in the investment markets are based on the strategies you use, the opportunities you see and the risks that you avoid. With that in mind, I want to introduce you to ... ››› more

    Just imagine the shock I got when I read that, “59% of TFSAs have been opened at banks, and the majority of investments are in cash.” Really? Cash investments? That really worries me. Think about this… Investing in a tax-free deposit account from the major South African banks will give a return between 6%-8%. But consider that inflation is sitting at 6.1% and not going to stop th... ››› more
