The Personal Finance series with Warren Ingram

Worried about SA? How to invest offshore (in a low-cost ‘index tracker’)

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!

But what if all, or most, of your eggs are in a basket called ‘South Africa’?

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Galileo Capital Personal Financial Advisor Warren Ingram.

Ingram discussed investing in low-cost index tracking investments overseas (i.e. not only rand-hedge options such as DBX trackers, but also investments denominated in US Dollar, GBP, etc.)

He discussed unit trust options and ETF options as well as tax and estate duty considerations (which are a big issues for US and UK listed investments).

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

Doing very small amounts… rather do it into a rand-based overseas investment.
