International Investments

Diversify your portfolio with offshore investments and spread your risk.

With a presence in over 22 countries across the globe, we offer a range of international investment solutions across countries and asset classes. Investing in global markets offers you:

  • Lower overall risk, as your portfolio isn’t concentrated in one market
  • Higher potential returns from a wider range of opportunities
  • Protection against a depreciation in the rand and other country-specific risks
  • Smoother potential returns by investing in different regions at different stages in their growth and economic cycles
  • Access to industries that are not available locally – South Africa produces less than 1% of the world’s GDP

Our prices are competitive internationally and our low cost structures help you maximise your returns. Irrespective of whether you want international exposure by investing in rand or prefer to invest directly offshore using your offshore investment allowance, we have options for you.
