Absence makes the heart grow fonder, but does it make cents?

September 26, 2014

Not only has modern technology shrunk the planet it’s also made it possible for Pretoria Oupas and Oumas to talk to the grandchildren in Perth and Portland as often as the heart strings desire.

Thanks to Skype, Facebook, and Face Time real-time keeping in touch is more appropriate and convenient than ever before! Confirmation that distance will never stand in the way of love …

When living in Perth or Portland however – taking into account increases in cost of living and the ongoing depreciation of the Rand relative to major world currencies – will your retirement investment in Pretoria go the distance?

Does it make sense to wait out the retirement clock to strike 55, to receive pension payments in South African Rand, for it to be converted to Australian Dollars, transferred to your Perth bank account?

Can you see your South African pension afford you a peaceful and successful retirement living? Providing the freedom you’re working towards? Is it the right thing to do to wager your retirement investment?

Does it make cents? We don’t know either. What we do know is the answer is in the numbers. Why not request a free personal South African Investment Report and decide for yourself. The numbers will tell you the story you need to hear.
