Waiting for the Ramaphosa rise – where is the stock market growth?
With the Ramaphosa administration in place and an air of optimism in the air, many people have hoped this will reflect well in the stock markets. But shares are currently down by 6% on the JSE and bonds by 8%. International share are down 5% and if you invested in listed property you are 20 % proper.
Warren Ingram, Personal Financial Advisor and Executive Director at Galileo Capital says that investors have not been well rewarded for being in the stock market due to what he calls 'zumanomics'. This is because the stock market has not kept track with inflation.
It jut tells you that when your stock market doesn't keep track with inflation - that you've been through an incredibly tough time.Warren Ingram, Personal Financial Advisor and Executive Director at Galileo Capital

We have had a massive recovery in the rand. This is also a factor for a drop in the markets according to Ingram.
The rand gets stronger. It's not a flaw in our economy, it's not that we're doing something wrong. We are just back in international markets. The markets are in favour of our currency.Warren Ingram, Personal Financial Advisor and Executive Director at Galileo Capital
