Business Maverick recently held a first in-person event in Cape Town, bringing together its avid readers with South Africa’s leading investment experts. 

Business Maverick journalist Ray Mahlaka was in conversation with Nazmeera Moola of Ninety One and Iraj Abedian of Pan-African Investment and Research Services about whether South Africa is investable at the moment. Although South Africa has many difficult moments, with worsening power cuts and increasing political and economic uncertainty, Moola and Abedian believe the country is a safe destination for investors.

Decent investment returns can be generated from South Africa — the universe of investment opportunities in the country remains large while capital markets are deep and stable. The grass is not greener on the other side, say Moola and Abedian, as the rest of the world is becoming complex and heading for dark times. DM
