Business Buzz - Rent (During the COVID-19 pandemic)

On the Business Wrap our financial expert, Ken Swettenham, gives the week’s top trending business and economics news. The Buffalo Index looks at what your R100 can get you in the cigarette market.

On the main topic, we talk about the effect of Covid-19 on the property market, considering that the economic decline and reduced occupancy rate has meant many tenants are no longer able to pay rent. To help us navigate this topic, we talk to Kaone Ntlamelle, a real estate investment banker & co-founder of New Era Property Investments; and Keillen Ndlovu, the head of Stanlib Listed Property funds, about the current outlook of the property market and the debate around rentals.
