2020 Investment Outlook

At the start of 2019 we predicted better investment returns, albeit a bumpy ride, and that is what we got. We expect more of the same for 2020. But don’t be too perturbed. If you have the right investment strategy you should beat inflation, evidenced by our low-risk, highly ranked, Prosperity Worldwide Fund that returned 16.4% in 2019. Please read our 2020 investment market outlook.

Investonline 2019 wrap and 2020 view

As South Africans come to the end of a frustrating year, it is a good time to reflect on the year that was and set our sights on how we are going to tackle 2020. This week, we touch on Investonline’s successful year, review how our 2019 predictions panned out, summarise our market views for 2020, highlight our most popular articles of the year and feature our leading financial planning tools and processes.

Mid-Life financial mistakes to avoid

As we start rounding off a challenging year, now is a good time to reflect on some financial mistakes we should avoid going into 2020.

What needs to be done to improve South Africa?

In my 30 years in the investment market, I can’t remember the mood in the country being this negative – and that is despite an exceptional Rugby World Cup win! Other than Ramaphosa being removed as President, I can’t think how things could get any worse. I believe, economically, the country is near its low point and that this is being reflected in investment markets. Allan Gray has written an article outlining 10 critical areas that need ‘doing’ to get the country to start growing, which we have summarised for you.

You must have a plan to meet your financial goals

The Springbok strategy this past weekend against Wales was not pretty, but it worked. Just as the Boks have a plan that plays to their strengths and produces a win, so too should each person have their own unique plan to meet their financial goals. The plan does not need to be dynamic or creative, but it must be tailored to your needs. It starts with engaging with a qualified independent financial advisor, as recommended by Allan Gray. Please read Allan Gray’s views on the role of an advisor in your investment success.
