Politics-proofing your portfolio this Christmas

Mining - 16 December 2019

It is just over seven months since our first “Politics-proofing your portfolio” note, issued ahead of the 8 May general and provincial elections. We advised that it was prudent to keep hedging your bets and have a good proportion of SA politics-proof stocks. As Christmas approaches this is even more the case. For those who wish to bolster their investment portfolio or give shares as a gift, we challenged ourselves to pick just three out of around 400 listed companies for the stocking. Predominantly domestic-orientated JSE listed companies don’t feature but we do see the three we have chosen as being accessible to all through the JSE, without having to buy foreign listed companies on another exchange, and which offer a shield from a weak local economy with problematic politics.
