    For local ETFs, capital gains, distributions (dividends) and REIT income is tax free. For foreign ETFs, capital gains are tax free, but distributions (dividends) and REIT income is taxed by that country, so the only tax benefit to us within a TFIA is on capital gains. Thus, in order of tax benefits in a TFIA (from biggest to smallest): Local property ETFs have the biggest tax saving Local income ETFs (high dividends) Local equities Foreign equities Foreign income ETFs (high dividends) Foreign property ETFs have the lease tax benefit

    Haven’t seen a post under here for a while nor have I said anything for a while... Anyways- I’ve decided to give my ETFs some serious thought and this is what I’ve come up with (I’m open to all suggestions). I want my overall exposure to be 70% local and 30% offshore. Then, under both local and international holdings I was thinking about having 70% equities, 20% property and 10% dividends. Or not including the dividends because most of these would be under equities anyways and then having maybe a 80/20 split? For local: Satrix Top 40 and maybe the Coreshares Smart (equally weighted) - I know these are basically the same, but I don’t want over exposure to one share nor do I just want equally weighted, so I thought that mixing the two would give a bit of a better mix. Then for local property Coreshares PropTrax10 And if dividends perhaps Coreshares Aristocrats? International I’m a bit confused about because I’d still like a bit of emerging markets as well. So maybe: 1) Ashburton global 1200 2) Sygnia S&P 500 (I know Ashburton would have quite a few American companies in it already) For international property I’m thinking about Coreshares S&P Global And dividends would be Coreshares again or maybe an ETF from Satrix. Is this too complicated of a mix and should I rather just aim for 1 or 2 ETFs for local and international? I am trying to keep the portfolio moderately simple!

    Your provident fund has a lot of SA exposure already. So I personally would look at offshore exposure: 90% STXWDM - tracks the shares of the developed world (USA, Europe, Japan etc). Solid long term investment unless the world goes to shiaat. 10% STXNDQ - tracks the top 100 Nasdaq shares (Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Uber etc). Potentially very good growth (or terrible). Over 5+ years that should deliver decent returns (DISCLAIMER: I won both).

    Blue Label share price plummets after Cell C letter Cell C recently published an open letter stating that the company would implement a new business plan to improve its current position. CEO Douglas Craigie Stevenson said in the letter that the company faces financial and other challenges, and will implement a new business plan which will simplify its business model. “We have implemented significant austerity measures and have cut costs which do not contribute to revenue-generating activities, including a review of all contracts to ensure alignment with business priorities and a hiring freeze,” he said. “I want to emphasise that Cell C is strategically positioning itself and we are using our best efforts to be a strong participant in the industry, I firmly believe we are on the right track.” Blue Label Statement Following the publication of this letter, the share price of Blue Label Telecoms – Cell C’s biggest investor – has plummeted by just under 10% as investors grow concerned over the state of the mobile operator. Blue Label Telecoms has published an announcement attempting to placate investors in the wake of the Cell C letter, stating that “no material concerns or issues have been uncovered as a result of Cell C’s new management”. “In anticipation of the transaction resolving the liquidity position at Cell C, and launching the new, improved operating model, Cell C’s management and board are ensuring that Cell C is sufficiently geared to run the business as required,” Blue Label Telecoms stated. “Blue Label and the Buffet Consortium are fully apprised of Cell C’s drive to effectively and efficiently utilise all of its network, technology and human capital assets, and are supportive of management’s initiatives.” Blue Label said it is looking forward to advising shareholders on the progress of transactions, which it said are currently at an advanced stage.
