  • 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

You and I might have had an “uninterrupted” power supply this winter but it's going to cost our pockets, big time! According to an article in the City Press newspaper this weekend, “The economy is set for a shock from the combined blows of Eskom's move to hike the cost of tw... ››› 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

    Thankfully, things have changed since the dark days of apartheid. The investment markets are certainly not racist, sexist or homophobic. 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

  • Don't make these three fatal mistakes with a Tax-Free Savings Account
    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

  • Why you should re-fall-in-love with these spurned market darlings
    Last year was a rough year for markets. The All Share Index only managed to eke out a measly 5.22%, almost a third of its long-term average return. It was also a year in which we witnessed the spectacular fall from grace of two the JSE's former market “darlings”. MTN which delivered 136.23% between 2010 and 2015, ended the year down -36%, after getting smashed on the news of its Nigerian ... ››› more

    Investing in South Africa today is proving to be a challenge for even the best investors. We have to deal with constant attacks to our investment capital.

    On 23 June 2016, I remember reading a Moneyweb article stating the “JSE, Rand shrug off Brexit fears”. Another well-known market commentator said that “I think it is going to be a non-event, quite honestly, but if it so happens that they vote to leave, the markets are in for a massive shock. I think the markets are going to scramble.” I even read a tweet from a trader stating that ... ››› more
