Golden Decade

We at Seed Investments write weekly newsletters and also compile a monthly market overview. Please click here to sign up on our mailing list to receive the emails directly to your mailbox.

We have recently compiled a brief overview on the Seed Absolute Return Fund, taking a look at the strategies implemented in the fund, who should invest in this fund and why. Click here to go to Seed's Articles and Research and feel free download the review and some of our fund fact sheets.

South African investors have experienced a golden decade. All asset classes have delivered high real returns over the past 10 years. The table below shows the annualised return of the different asset classes in South Africa over different periods.

From the table above we can see that over the last 10 years South Africa markets did very well, even when taking the market crash in 2008 into account. If you were invested into property you would have doubled your investment every 3 years on average.

The graph below shows how our market fared against its global counterparts. The values are all in rand terms.

From the graph above we can see that an investor would have been better off locally than abroad. The table below shows the cumulative and annualised returns for the different indices.

Over the past 10 years a few things worked in South Africa’s favour:

• The rand strengthened over the period from a very weak base
• Our economy was able to defy the naysayers
• Corporate earnings increased
• Ratings of South African companies increased (i.e. PE ratio’s increased)
• Bonds and properties re-rated
• Offshore assets performed badly due to high starting valuations and not due to poor earnings growth

Going forward can we expect another golden decade?

Unfortunately the picture is not as rosy. While some factors are improving, other factors are deteriorating. The rand is currently very strong and our local assets are expensive relative to their starting point 10 years ago. South Africa’s competitiveness has also been declining due to:

• High real wage increases
• Decreases in productivity
• Rigid labour laws
• Failing education system

It is very unlikely that we will be spoiled with similar returns over the next decade. This doesn’t mean that one should disinvest from the markets, as an investment into cash will guarantee that one loses capital on a purchasing power basis. Everyone needs to adjust their expected returns going forward and relook their investment plan to ensure that there’s enough saved up for the future.

Kind regards,

Gerbrandt Kruger
