  • 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.
