Anaemic rate environment for money market funds

We have undoubtedly entered a difficult period for money market funds.
The overnight repo rate of 3.5% is the lowest in South Africa’s history, and offers only a marginal uplift relative to inflation of 3.1% year on year for August 2020. Other market forces are also at work in keeping money market returns low. Thalia Petousis, portfolio manager at Allan Gray, joins Kaya Bizz to explain what this means for investors who have become accustomed to real returns from these low-risk investments.

Is there a place for real assets in a conservative portfolio?

Today, cautious investors are allocating ever-increasing amounts of their capital to fixed income, including money market, bond and income funds. This is an understandable reaction to a five-year period of poor real equity returns and the increasing uncertainty we face as we live through the COVID-19 pandemic. But is there still a place for real assets in your conservative portfolio? Sean Munsie, portfolio manager at Allan Gray, joins Kaya Bizz to discuss.

Should I file a tax return for the 2020 tax year?

In this period of great uncertainty, one thing you can count on is tax. Tax filing season kicks off on the 1st of September, and if you have earned an income during the 2019/2020 tax year, you may need to file a return. In response to COVID-19, the South African Revenue Service has tried to simplify the tax filing process for individual taxpayers and remove the need to visit branches. For the first time, a significant number of taxpayers will be auto-assessed throughout the month of August. Carrie Norden, tax manager at Allan Gray, joins us Kaya Bizz to tell us more.

Nomi Bodlani joins us to reflect on some of the common personal finance and investment mistakes we make when we’re just starting out and talk about how we can position ourselves for long-term financial success.

Do you have an emergency fund?

One thing the current pandemic has highlighted is that life doesn’t always go according to plan – and this often means we have to shell out money when we are least prepared for it. These unexpected expenses can have a significant and lasting impact on our long-term financial health. By building emergency reserves we can make sure that we are able to respond to life’s crises without compromising our financial standing or taking on expensive debt. Noluyolo Betela, client relationship manager at Allan Gray, joins KayaBizz to discuss the ins and outs of putting an emergency fund in place.

Optimism in a time of distress

Many of us are feeling overwhelmed as COVID-19-related deaths, job losses and financial stress begin to have a real impact on our lives. The data is daunting, the headlines are overwhelmingly negative, and it seems as though things may get even worse before they get better. Given this reality, it may be hard to find many things to feel hopeful about, but scientific research suggests that optimism can play an important role in getting us through times of distress and paving the way for a better future. Lise-Mari Crafford, head of ManCo Distribution and Allan Gray, joins Kaya Bizz to tell us more.
