  • "Triple Witching" stirs local market rally- Two to buy and two to sell

In the UK and US this happens on Friday's, but in SA it happens a day earlier on Thursday. The event typically creates increased market activity and in some cases volatility. Global markets were relatively subdued for last week's expiry, the US, UK and European majors were firmer by b... ››› more

  • Choppy waters ahead? - Two to buy and one to sell
  • The news yesterday that several ministers have been recalled to SA has created some consternation; the Rand jolted back 3%. There is speculation of a cabinet reshuffle and/or further legal developments relating to the impasse between Treasury, Banks, and the Gupta's…...

  • Cabinet reshuffle announced - Two to buy and one to sell
  • Admittedly, I expected more movement in the Rand once the cabinet reshuffle was announced. We have a saying that “the Market always knows” which seems to apply in this case. When Mr. Nene was removed, the Rand fell 8,5% within the first few days and then extended those losses by another 10% a few weeks later. By comparison the Rand has loss only 7% so far, perhaps the Market knew that SA I... ››› more

Now you can invest in markets across America, Asia, Africa…you name it. And this makes the idea of offshore investing not only interesting, but downright exciting too.

  • The biggest mistake you can make when building an offshore portfolio
  • I call it the “offshore investment conundrum”. Investors have no clue where to invest or what to invest in, leaving their cash exposed to unpredictable economic and political events. Investing in just any old offshore product will cost you time and more importantly, money. While I admire the ambition of investors to identify opportunities elsewhere, the fact of the matter is, over half of ... ››› more

  • Putting a few eggs in other baskets is easier than you think
  • Imagine a country with massive amounts of natural resources. The richest economy in its region. However, there are signs of trouble, including rising inequality and societal unrest. To combat this the government is turning to populism by taxing the rich, confiscating assets and dramatically increasing the redistribution of funds to the poor. This is not South Africa in 2017 I am t... ››› more

  • Investing offshore could help you protect your money and even profit from the weak rand
  • Since 1990, the rand has depreciated at an average of 6% per year against the US dollar. Due to the growing budget deficit and poor economic situation in South Africa, the rand is likely to get worse. Think about this. The JSE only contributes around 0.5% to global GDP, that means if you stick to local investments only, you're not taking advantage of international investment opportunities. ... ››› more
