Cyril Ramaphosa is now the ANC president.

What does that mean for South Africa and investors?

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

  • The vote was very close and the split between the top six probably means the new leadership is not as business friendly as investors hope.

  • Exchange rates have strengthened drastically. Should you take more money offshore?

  • Will Zuma step down or will the ANC recall him speedily? The answer has big implications for investors and ratings agencies. A quick resolution to the Zuma problem and a Cabinet reshuffle could be great for investors. The alternative could be damaging in the short term, but potentially positive in the long run.

For more detail; listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital
