  2. Indeed they have been doing something radically different to the index they measure that fund against (the JSE ALSI). For the better part of a decade they have been maintaining a +- 25% allocation to offshore equity. They use an inappropriate index, one of the oldest tricks in the active management book. I doubt they beat the suitable index.

  4. Refengkgutso, my reply to you is just a copy-and-paste from my post: "WHEN Monyane, Guptas, Salim Essa, Zuma, Molefe, Anoj Singh, etc. ALL are convicted and SENT to jail, then maybe its worth paying full tax once again. AND the Gupta companies must return all the VAT refunds they illegally got from a corrupt SARS!??" Blanket boycotting (of tax, trade, investment, etc.) did the trick pre-1994 and it fortunately led to a change in gov....this is why it is worth it, UNLESS... read my copy-and-paste once again? In this way, the gov will show that it is trying to do whats good for the country and not for their political party?

  6. On the financial side it is shocking the number of SME's are not being paid by large business and are struggling to stay afloat, some already crashed. Added to this the consumer is being sucked dry by national govt and local governments to pay for all the corruption and looting. We in for some very tuff times yet leading to more violent unrest and political instability.

  26. Judge Spilge has shown remarkable restraint, he has been insulted, accused of all sorts of wrongdoing and has gone the extra mile to give these two characters every opportunity to receive a fair trial. We must remember that the law is very patient, their time will come when the good judge has weighed all the arguments and then the axe will fall, as fall it will.

  30. Things will get worse before they get better. we are a very resilient nation and far more hardened than others. The majority of the population have no choice but to "Vas byte" they have very few other options available. It is human nature to expect the absolute worst but the sun still rises in the morning(in South Africa at least). There is still a core of very ethical and moral people who will stay anchored in South Africa come hell or high water and this is where our hope lies. Buy far people are the greatest investment of a country, so we are gifted with great wealth. There will always be people who come and go but we have a nucleus to survive and the eventful past history has been testament to this! Viva South Africa......Viva!!!!!

  2. "Is it enough to just build their retirement capital, or should they not be contributing to the development of the country so that the society their members retire into is better than it is now?" Yes it is enough, I do not see where the returns from the "social security" investment will come from, we have government for those things. Anne Cabot-Alletzhauser, rather spend your time and effort lobbying government to stop wasting money and to use our tax money where it is needed, thanks.

Take a drive through old industrial parks such as Silverton , Rosslyn , Kempton ,... that is what the guy on the street sees. Workshops having a hard time staying open , outsourced work, unemployment... Where does all this speculative value/hope come from, it’s not like it all went south over night?

  8. A very interesting article as the foreign holders of our debt can sell very quickly. I agree that local investors (Read mainly SA Pension funds who have the eight highest assets in the world measure in dollars and 5th largest in size of GDP) will buy local bonds. Problem is then that the risk profile of local funds will change and any no performance will wipe out one of the best and highest assets bases in the world! We have to become better at exposing government faults. South Africans do not yet understand the risk to their pensions and quite possibly their lives of a government that gets this "money hungry" Thanks, good article!

  12. The main causes; 1. VAT increase to 15% 2. Municipal rate increases 3. Sugar tax 4. Mismanaged fuel price 5. Inelastic interest rates (not dropping even when fundamentals are right) This is the elephant in the room, and it is killing the economic growth,

  14. I agree. The man in the street knows much more than what our learned analysts know: less and less employment opportunities, decreasing levels of confidence in the economy, little incentive for new investments in manufacturing factories. Maybe analysts should leave their cosy offices and take drives in the industrial areas, in addition those people indicated, in Alrode, Industria, Wadeville. Mind you, this is only in Johannesburg area. One shudders to think what the picture looks like in other places around the country

  18. Bwahahaha where are the grootbeks trying to talk up their beloved Cape Town property market now? This hasn't played out yet, not by a long shot...as alluded to by Loos, the DA-created water disaster hasn't gone away, and I doubt it ever will, due to overpopulation. Reason the Northern Suburbs growth has declined is the simple fact is that it takes 2 hours of traffic (or waking up at 3:30am every morning to avoid it) to get into work. The political risks in WC/CT are huge...the DA has lost a huge swathe of support due to the de Lille debacle. Watch the effect of a change of political power will do to the property market then... Just be glad you weren't the semigrant pillock who "snapped up" the R6Million Knilworth townhouse last year...

  24. I live in a limpopo, sure rates and taxes are cheaper here, but around 10-20% of the time I don't have water, not because of a lack of water, just because our local ANC municipality is defunct, so I installed a Jojo tank and a pressure pump, now recently my power started being a problem around 5% of the time, so now I have to look at generating my own power, I was in CPT recently, and it makes Limpopo look like some third world African country while CPT looks like Europe. Would I pay more in rates and taxes for better service delivery? Hell yes.

Probably just a family that moved to Cape Town because they saw a better future for their family. Taking joy from somebody else's potential misfortune. Terrible.

  30. I wonder how much tax is collected from this. Probably nothing. Make our tax rates and business environment competitive and stop listening to the 1960s clots from the SACP and you may see growth..in jobs and tax collections. These fools in the ANC focus on complete rubbish. Imagine no BEE, AA and a corporate tax rate of say 12% in SA.... But that requires leadership...not a self enriching President building a R200mPalazzo for himself in Bantry Bay..having built so many successful businesses as opposed to grossly benefiting from BEE

  32. This legislation is great news for the Mining Owners and Mining Community, that's if the whole purpose of this is for the Mines to completely disappear. In a country where only 6 out 10 working cable people generate an income and in an industry which had collapsed, the government imposes Sanctions on business which prohibits them from making contributing anything meaningful to society. I am sadly of the impression that the government wants business to collapse purposefully so that it becomes cheap for the politically connected to acquire them for next to nothing that way RamaZuma (anc factions) get their 1000 black industrialists . I've said it before all they are doing is dividing the Pie that feeds while it shrinks, instead of growing it. The JSE will collapse it already is in terms of $/BTC Year on Year value. It's only a matter of time when the ECB and ACB stop buying bonds and push up interest rates. Well done guys, show the world how to collapse and capture a country

  34. I said some time back, on Moneyweb, that prices would implode. CT has become the most expensive city to live in thanks to the DA. DA, is party that thought it a great idea to spend R300 MILLION on bicycle lanes in CT that NEVER GET USED. Now we have to pay R56 p/m for a water meter and R150 p/m electricity service fee on top of the most expensive water and electricity prices in SA. Youth unemployment has exploded in CT, well over 30%. Well done DA. All people talk about at dinners parties in CT is how expensive CT has become. The DA, through all its INCREASED administered prices has taken BILLIONS OF RAND OUT OF THE LOCAL ECONOMY, that is why CT economy is suffering. Poverty way up, CRIME OUT OF CONTROL.

  38. Quote, Explaining South Africa’s slow growth despite an upturn in the global economy since mid-2016 is tricky. Having a formal sector, controlled by Sars and reserve bank, and a informal one, controlled by gangs, can be the reason. The latter is out on growth by popular demand called expropriation democratically.
