Expectations for 2013
23 January 2013
The current investment environment is characterised by economic uncertainty and in many instances fundamentally expensive asset classes, probably more so than before. The local investment landscape is complicated further by a choice of over 1,000 unit trusts. Faced with these circumstances, trying to make informed investment decisions is difficult.

Expectations for 2011
3 February 2011
During 2010, the South African investment environment was characterised by foreign demand for bonds and equities, a strong Rand and consequent low inflation. This encouraged further interest rate cuts resulting in an economy that was good for consumers but not for exporting and mining. The extraordinary success of the Soccer World Cup elevated South Africa in the eyes of the world and left a very positive feeling in so many minds.
The year ahead may well be one of a changing investment environment, characterised by rising inflation, higher interest rates; a consumer under pressure and a downward adjustment of many asset prices.
We at Marriott are, however, confident that the environment is conducive to producing the desired outcome for retired investors.
