The increasing number of failing JSE-listed companies – coupled with devastating government policies and corruption – is making South Africa ever more uninvestable, warned Nick Pitro (a senior consultant at wealth manager Asuten Morris Associates) on Thursday.

Pitro suggests getting as much money offshore as quickly as possible.

Nick Pitro, senior consultant - Asuten Morris Associates

Nick Pitro, senior consultant - Asuten Morris Associates

The JSE… our investments are essentially going backwards… What if South African companies don’t recover?
