    Default The economy and investment thread

    How about a general thread to discuss the economy, investing, shares, currency, inflation, resources, etc.

    This would be great, it could be a great learning curve for some.

    I currently manage just over R100 million of clients assets, but the company's total assets managed is at R2.2 Billion

    And what do you do with your clients assets? Where do you invest it for them?

    I see the Rand/Dollar is now at R9.25. Where is this going?

    What percentage of your investments would you guys recommend to hold offshore?

    I've been wanting to invest overseas for a while now, don't like the fact that 100% of everything i have is in SA. But as the Rand weakens it gets harder to invest overseas. The UK rental market is excellent, but you would need at least a 25% deposit and the properties there don't come cheap.

    The amazing thing is at the moment no-one has a real clear idea why share prices have gone up so much.

    Yeah well the stock market moves on sentiment, not actual fundamentals. Also you have things like gold which moves on risk, when investors get nervous they always flock to gold.

    The whole thing is dodgy to be honest, but there is money to be made.
