Offshore Investing – First ask why -(then where and how)

Whenever SA Inc has a wobble, South Africans worry that we are going the same way as our neighbours to the north and look to moving some of their nest egg offshore (or moving themselves out altogether).

  • Financial decisions can be quite daunting – especially for someone like me who struggles with simple “chicken or beef” choices! So, I made none because everything seemed so complicated and the consequences of wrong choices so dire. Then I met Dawn Ridler… Her thorough approach and depth of analysis made the choices so clear! I now sleep deeply knowing that I have all the cover I need – the right policies with the right suppliers on the right terms. Thank you, Kerenga!
