There are a number of ways to protect your investments in these turbulent times.
Ingram answered a number of questions:
What role can physical commodities like gold or Krugerrands play in your portfolio?
- Protection against systemic risk
What about physical property – property prices in the Cape are booming – is this a good idea?
Physical assets are always comforting to investors
A rising market is great, but rental income is not rising at same rate
- Concentration risk – too much capital in one asset
What about overseas investments?
Diversification is good
- Be careful about the exchange rate that you use
What about buying a property overseas?
Ensure you have a legal understanding of your rights and obligations
- Some areas might be very over-priced (e.g. London)
What is the best way then?
Spread your assets across a range of investment types and in different countries
- Be ready to take advantage of opportunities if other people start panicking
