Roundtable discussion: Investors’ guide to the galaxy in 2021
Don’t panic! We recently marked 300 days of the Covid-induced lockdown in South Africa. We’ve experienced one of the most severe sell-offs in market history with three of the worst trading days recorded (historically) in March alone, as well as the shortest bear market recorded (spanning over just 33 days) , and now most markets are now sitting at all-time highs. Bearing this in mind how are the stars aligning for investors in 2021? Michael Avery speaks to Maarten Ackerman, advisory partner and chief economist at Citadel Investment Services; Liston Meintjes, independent market analyst; and Debra Slabber, portfolio specialist at Morningstar Investment Management SA about the investor’s guide to the investable galaxy.
