    My professional people cannot answer. They do something. Investment in Europe made better return in R than local but it can turn over night.

    It is not a small problem in today's world. My son asked the same. No answer.

    I split currencies, countries and what ever and hope for the best.

    Try to buy lower if a buying opportunity comes along which will happen.

    Quite risky I think. these have all run hard and valuations are certainly sky high. Does not mean they cant run more but I'll be very reluctant to put large amounts of money into them right now.
    I would prefer high Div US stocks

    So I'd just like to comment vaguely on this subject

    So 3 months back this "financial guy" joined my company, had a look at our finance "instrument" and nearly had an heart attack "our 30 day account is seen as" unsucred leaning" even though our clients are listed companies we still pay about 80% ROI per annum.....

    So 1 month later the finance guy brings this chilled toppie to the table he looks at our books and puts over R2 bar on a 24 % ROI

    1 April toppies phones to say he has an additional R4 bar to invest, me thinking April floels 🤣 he didn't think so.......

    So my 2cents really take a good look around private investment is very very scares and I'm sure there are allot great small business out their that needs that investor to take them to the next level!

    Accessing private investors is very difficult

    I have to agree with this. The Nasdaq has gone up 100% over the last year. It went up 4 fold from 4100 to over 14000 in 5 years. This can go on for now but at some stage those investing large amounts now will see the capital worth less.
    The next 5 years will not be as good as the most recent looking back.

    I also cannot work out where best to put our limited retirement funds apart from the existing living annuities which we have.
    The best investment for me IN THE PAST has been the rentals and until a few years back, the stock market.
    However things have changed and will continue to do so with some quite serious bumps coming up I think.

    I am still in the stock market but ever more by way of index funds, index linked funds, ETF's and less in individual companies.
    At the moment a bit cash heavy waiting for something to pop and create some buying opportunities.
    I have very much reduced holdings in NASPERS / Prosus because I have exposure there anyway via the living annuity. (I am nervous about the heavy reliance on 10cent).

    Some gold, platinum, palladium ETFs

    With your 2 bar I would say firstly, if it was me, I would not invest all at once and also spread it across sectors and regions.
    Maybe feed in one or two hundred thousand at a time over a year or two ?
    Invest the balance in easily accessible way in the meantime. Watch out for the tax free limit on interest earned and remember the tax on dividends.

    Do not put too much into any one index or commodity or even more so individual company.
    I got bitten with Steinhoff through ignoring this aspect. Hence the wariness with NASPERS and Prosus.

    Now lets be clear that I am NOT advising, I am not saying that my actions are right, I am only informing as to my own actual approach to investin g and what I WOULD DO if I was fortunate enough to have another 2 Bar to invest right now.

    Nice problem

    Glad to see I am not the only one wary of the market and being cautious.
    I am cautious by nature and think I will spread it over multiple options
