  • You recall the ‘mind blowing' emoji? That's how I feel every time I find someone without a tax-free savings account (TFSA). After all, it's one of the best investment decisions you can make as a South African. It's a total no-brainer if you're serious about investing. And, just last week, Tito Mboweni, the SA finance minister, increased your tax-free annual limit from R33 000 to R36 000. ... ››› more

  • A “Retirement Plan B” you can't ignore!
  • Let me ask you a serious question… How many of you believe you have enough money to last your retirement? Well when you consider that over 50% of South Africans aren't confident they will be able to draw an income in retirement, I'm going to assume not many of you. You see, a standard retirement annuity is simply not enough to generate the income you need, for the retirement you want... ››› more

  • The right Tax Free Savings Account could make your children billionaires
  • Regular readers will recall I wrote an article a few weeks ago, which claimed that investing the full Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) allowance for your new-born child would turn him into a billionaire by the time he retired.

  • 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

  • If you're still paying tax on your investments you're losing out big-time!
  • Do you own unit trusts, ETFs or shares? If you do, you're paying 15% tax on all the dividends you receive. You also pay 13.33% capital gains tax once you sell any of these.

  • How a lazy bugger financial advisor could cost you R14,949
  • A friend of mine, Isaac, decided that in addition to investing in individual shares he also wanted to save a monthly amount into an ETF. It's a hassle free way to save for the long run with lower risk than a share picking portfolio. So Isaac contacted his bank and asked his financial advisor which ETFs would be suitable to invest a monthly sum into. His advisor actually gave him a sensible comb... ››› more

  • How you can profit from any region of the world at a fraction of the cost
  • I've always been a fan of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). They're a low-cost way to get great returns from multiple shares with just one purchase. But now there's a new tool that's completely changed the game.   The ETF that allows you to profit from the World at a Fraction of the Cost!   It uses a similar strategy that we use in the Unconventional Millionaire which has doubled ... ››› more
