How to build a portfolio during times of extreme uncertainty.

Major global events over the past three years have driven home an important life lesson: the need to expect, and plan for, the unexpected. When it comes to our personal finances, this means balancing the need to have some emergency cash available, with the need for earning inflation-beating returns over the long term. What is the best way to think about building your portfolio during times of extreme uncertainty? Cedrick Pila, IFA Distribution regional manager at Allan Gray, joins Kaya Bizz to discuss why a diversified portfolio protects long-term investors against uncertain outcomes.

ALLAN GRAY: Why every investor needs an independent adviser right now.

The stock market is a lot like the ocean, with rising tides, ebbs and flows. Navigating these choppy waters can be challenging without the guidance of a good independent financial adviser who can help long-term investors stay the course and avoid destructive behaviours that lock-in permanent losses. Ahead of World Financial Planning Day tomorrow (5 October 2022), Nomi Bodlani, head of Direct Clients at Allan Gray, joins Kaya Bizz to discuss why partnering with an independent financial adviser can improve your investment outcomes and build long-term wealth.

Why financial optimism matters and how to find it when the world is a mess.

With the cost of living escalating, inflation reaching all-time highs, rampant rolling blackouts, and the very real risk of the South African economy slipping into a recession, many investors may be left feeling less optimistic about their financial futures. It is easy to get bogged down by the current state of affairs, but as long-term investors, history reminds us that periods of strife often present new opportunities, and that is why being successful at investing requires a degree of optimism. Lise-Mari Crafford, head of ManCo Distribution at Allan Gray, joins Kaya Bizz to explain why being optimistic about our personal finances matters, and how we can find optimism when the world is a mess.

The first few weeks of a new year can feel like a clean slate and a good time to give our finances a fresh start.

This cognitive phenomenon is known as the “fresh start effect”. Allan Gray’s Nomi Bodlani joins Kaya Bizz to discuss ways we can leverage the “fresh start effect” to set achievable financial goals and promote aspirational behaviours.
