RAs can now increase your offshore exposure to 45% - what do Reg 28 changes mean for your portfolio?

Posted on 06/09/2022

Regulation 28 has been amended, which means that South African asset managers can now invest up to 45% of your retirement annuity portfolios offshore. The increase from 30% is a welcome development for investors – we all want to ensure that our money can get as much offshore exposure as possible.
How does this affect you? How can you leverage these changes to your advantage, and what does the predicted R400bn – R600bn capital outflow from South Africa mean for the economy?
We address these questions and others with Sagneeth Sewnath, deputy MD of NinetyOne, the biggest listed asset manager in South Africa.
