Tax-free investing, where are my profits
March will be the start of the fifth year of tax-free investing for South Africans. Since it’s introduction the local market has gone nowhere as we trade back at 2014 levels. Offshore has fared better, helped by a weaker Rand over the period. But for many, the tax-free experience hasn’t been all that thrilling in terms of returns.
This first JSE Power Hour event of 2019, presented by Just One Lap founder Simon Brown, will cover tax-free investing. What it is and is there any way we can boost returns? Is there an opportunity to catch up on lost returns in the past few years? We’ll also go back to the basics, covering rules and requirements as well as any changes that may be made in the budget scheduled for the 20th of Feb.
Simon will also cover the new Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that listed in 2018 looking for any worth including in a tax-free portfolio as well as answering questions about tax-free investing and ETFs.
