    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.

    Very good documentary about Warren Buffett Becoming Warren Buffett 2017 (HBO Documentary Films) [video=youtube]https://youtu.be/2VlojxrCp9Q With a net worth of more than $60 billion, Warren Buffett is truly a one-of-a-kind billionaire. Now 86, the legendary investor still lives in a modest home in Omaha, and continues to drive himself to the office every morning to manage Berkshire Hathaway, the fourth-largest public company in the world. But more surprising than his humble lifestyle and self-effacing personality are Buffett’s moral integrity and unique mind, which drove him not only to become the most successful businessman in the world, but also an unparalleled philanthropist. With unprecedented access to his day-to-day personal life, Becoming Warren Buffett tells the improbable story of how an ambitious, numbers-obsessed boy from Nebraska became one of the richest, most-respected men in the world. The definitive documentary on Buffett, this candid portrait sheds new light on a man who has helped shape the way Americans view capitalism and, more recently, philanthropy. Told primarily in Buffett’s own words, the film features never-before-released home videos, family photographs, archival footage and interviews with family and friends. Buffett, along with partner Charlie Munger, would build his fortune at Berkshire Hathaway, a struggling textile company that he turned into a behemoth holding corporation with stakes in Coke, Heinz, Geico and other blue-chip companies. Tracing his ascent from first-time investor to business maven, the documentary delves into the highs and lows of Buffett’s career and personal life, from becoming a father of three and the world’s richest businessman, to weathering the Salomon Brothers treasury bond trading scandal, which threatened his sterling reputation, the loss of his wife and first love, Susie Thompson Buffett, and what led him to make the largest philanthropic donation in history. Kunhardt Films’ HBO credits include the Emmy-nominated Nixon by Nixon: In His Own Words, the Emmy-nominated Gloria: In Her Own Words, the Emmy-winning Teddy: In His Own Words and the Emmy-winning Jim: The James Foley Story. Becoming Warren Buffett is a co-production of HBO and Kunhardt Films; directed by Peter Kunhardt; produced by Teddy Kunhardt and George Kunhardt. For HBO: senior producer Jacqueline Glover; executive producer Sheila Nevins
