The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield received the following question from a listener:
“Over the past few years my wife and I have accumulated a seven digit sum of cash which is currently sitting in a seven-day call account with a bank.
“The problem I have with this is that the interest earned on the sum of money is greater than the allowable interest exemption offered by Sars on a yearly basis.
“We’re, therefore, getting taxed at 41% of the additional interest earned over the Sars exemption.
“The problem we face is that there are so many different investment vehicles offered by so many different companies.
“It is very daunting for us.
“Please, can you ask Warren Ingram to explain the possible investment vehicles which would yield the best, tax efficient return at the lowest cost?”
For Ingram’s answer, listen to the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

I suggest a moderate or conservative or stable fund.— Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor
Shares are by far the most tax efficient investment.— Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor
