    Yes, firstly, don't overdo it with too many ETFs. Just pick a few core ones and stick with them. Otherwise you just end up with higher costs, duplication of stocks and possible over-exposure to certain stocks that is hard to control. Secondly, pick a good mix of local, international and property shares to spread your risk. If you want to stay with Satrix only, I'd recommend something like the following portfolio split: Satrix 40 (STX40) : 40% Satrix MSCI World (STXWDM) : 40% Satrix Property (STXPRO) : 20%

    We actually wrote an article about this a few months ago. https://platinumwealth.co.za/insights/finance/building-an-emergency-fund/ One thing I would add is to look at Tymebank (we have them online if you have questions @TymeBank Team) If you use them as an emergency fund you will be earning more interest than any other bank in South Africa. With that said, personally, I do a 32-day notice account + credit card (if the funds need to be accessed right now) and then can be paid back from the notice account.

    Recently retired (or sort of) now based in the Garden Route. Although I do have Unit Trusts, I prefer ETF's and doing the migration to the latter in a structured (or trying to) way, as and when the opportunity allows. Also trade commodity options (on US exchanges) to keep my mind active and for something different. As far as JSE equites go ....sshhh ... currently like having a family member in Pollsmoor - don't talk too much. Looking forward to sharing ups and downs and successes !!

    Line of Duty (Netflix). About events in the Police Ant-Corruption Unit. Season 1 has 5 episodes and I believe Season 2 will be making its way to South Africa. Really worth watching. 9.5/10

    I Am Mother (2019 - Netflix) 7.5/10 Good performances, interesting premise. I felt they could've made a little more of the story though - it just kind of fizzles out towards the end.

    Money is in Yesterday I transferred money from Capitec to TymeBank via an EFT at 7 pm (11 Feb 2019) the money reflected now in my TymeBank account at 7 pm (12 Feb 2019) so it took 24 hours, not impressive, but I think that has more to do with Bankserv than it has to do with TymeBank. Login page Tymebank online banking dashboard Tymebank everyday account overview Tymebank transaction details Underlying code observation The Tymebank online banking interface is incredibly smooth in terms of the layout, it's build using an off the shelf framework called Bootstrap v3.3.7, which means they used an open source front-end with some custom modifications (very startup-ish, but I like their implementation it's clean and relatively fast.). I think they are using Microsoft Azure for some data and then AWS as the main system (which explains the slow latency since the server is not in SA) and then it seems they host some of the services as a herokuapp cloud application as well, probably testing (an API of TymeBank: https://internet-banking.herokuapp.com/api) the production system I think sits on Azure and AWS (aws: ibauthprox.tymedigital.co.za and Azure: cbsaweb-sit.northeurope.cloudapp.azure.com) Potential Security Risk Besides the latency (Slow response) the only real issue I have is that they do not request a pin or OTP after you login to the website, so because their site remembers your ID and password it means if your laptop or pc gets stolen, your bank is compromised. Ditto for anyone using a public computer to access their TymeBank bank account, if you use a public PC consider your TymeBank bank account compromised.
