  • How to use dividends to beat inflation in 2022
  • A couple weeks ago, it was revealed that SA's inflation hit the highest level since 2017. The number came in at 5.9%, but the reality is, prices for some goods and services seem to have doubled over the past year. In response to rising inflation, SARB increased the repo rate to 4%.
