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.

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.

How to stay the course in uncertain times

If you have been keeping an eye on your investments, you may have noted some volatility in your portfolio over the last few weeks as the markets have reacted to our fears around coronavirus, ratings downgrades, Eskom and a host of other issues.

What happens to your retirement savings if your company shuts its doors?

South Africa faces a daunting future. Many companies are expected to experience economic hardship and may even have to close their doors as an unfortunate consequence of this difficult economic time. This will ultimately force many businesses to let employees go. Besides the emotional turmoil that employees face when they lose their jobs, many don’t receive the assurance that their pensions are safe. The Financial Sector Conduct Authority recently warned that many distressed employers will default on their employees’ contributions to retirement funds. Saleem Sonday, head of Group Savings and Investments at Allan Gray, joins us to shed some light on employee rights and responsibilities when it comes to retirement savings.
