Investment & Currency:


The IRT gives you the freedom to invest globally without restricting the type of investments or currency. Investments can include unit trusts, listed shares, private equity, alternative investments, life products and more traditional investments such as bonds and cash deposits. This structure gives the following benefits:

  • Reduced investment risk as your assets are diversified away from the single South African market.

  • Opportunities to access a wide range of international investment opportunities.

  • Access to hard currency which you will be able to hedge against the rand currency risk.

  • Not subject to South African asset swap rules which limit the type or nature of investment.

  • Option to tailor an investment portfolio to your exact requirements.
