[WATCH] Stephen Grootes shares his enthusiasm for the flourishing rand

In his opening comments, Stephen took time to chat about how well the rand is doing. Stephen says that if you look at the rand right now, it’s going through the roof. He adds that it’s R11.97 to the dollar at the moment which hasn’t been the case for a long time.

Stephen says there was a report that stipulated that the appointment of a new ANC leader was welcomed by investors, which contributed to the status of the Rand.
