Is South Africa in a fiscal death spiral?

That is the trillion rand question in the fixed income market if you are buyer or holder of South African government bonds and more broadly for a major question for all South Africans because if we are, if our debt balloons to unsustainable levels and we have to approach the IMF for help, this will undoubtedly precipitate painful change that will ripple throughout society and cause major political and social upheaval.

Some say, this is the only way.

Counterpoint Asset Management has run scenarios on the outlook for South African government finances over the next 20 years. One potential outcome is for the country to face a big structural adjustment because the debt-to-GDP ratio exceeds 180% by 2040 in the worst-case scenario.

Michael Avery is joined by Counterpoint head of fixed income, Daniel King.

Digging into SA’S mining sector

As the world’s suits in hard hats descend on the Cape Town International Convention Centre for the first in-person Mining Indaba in two years, much has changed in the commodity landscape.
But sadly, in SA not much has changed.
The South African mining industry is nowhere near getting a new cadastral system, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) said on the first day of the Mining Indaba 2022.
During a question-and-answer session following his keynote address on Monday, Gwede Mantashe, South African Mines Minister acknowledged there was no timeframe for implementing a new mining cadastre to replace the dysfunctional SAMRAD system. “You can’t commit to a deadline for something that hasn’t started.”

Let’s welcome our panel, Peter Leon, Partner and Africa Chair of international law firm Herbert Smith Freehills; Paul Miller of AmaranthCX, and Erroll Smart, CEO of Orion Minerals

Animal Spirits

The South African (SA) stock market fell for only the third time in the past 18 months in April, as risk appetite soured globally.
There were few places to hide on the local bourse, though coal exporter, Thungela, continued to benefit from surging global energy prices, with the stock up 48% MoM and 222% higher YTD, having risen elevenfold since listing less than a year ago. Sasol, the other local beneficiary of higher energy prices, was up 11% MoM.
We’ve started May with most global markets giving in to the bears, bonds rising, the dollar strengthening and central banks eating lots of humble pie.
The diary is full of Fed speakers this week, which will give them plenty of opportunity to keep up the hawkish chorus.

Let’s find out what the animal spirits are telling us with Chris Holdsworth, chief investment strategist at Investec Wealth and Investment

The Week In Perspective

A day after celebrating the Federal Reserve’s signal that it wouldn’t be making any big moves, traders woke up on Thursday deciding that the central bank will struggle to fight high inflation amid the lingering threat of a recession.
In a sharp about-face, investors sold stocks, bonds and cryptocurrencies on Thursday. The S&P 500 Index lost 3.6%, erasing about $1.3-trillion of market value, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 dropped 5.1%, the most since September 2020. The Dow Jones industrial average tumbled 3.12%.
The positive sentiment melted after the BoE raised its rate for the fourth straight meeting, taking its benchmark to the highest in 13 years.
Zondo’s fourth report into State Capture and the NPA’s victory in its battle to take on state capture corruption – by overturning a Gauteng High Court ruling that unfroze R1 billion in assets allegedly linked to the looting of Transnet – raise fresh hope on the accountability front
While watching the ANC debate how to fix Eskom in parliament reminds one that the only power change the ruling party should be allowed near is at the ballot box.
Let’s welcome the panel Warwick Lucas Head of Galileo Securities; Raymond Parsons, professor in the School of Business and Governance at Northwest University & Isaah Mhlanga, Chief Economist at Alex Forbes
