How to invest your retirement funds (in post-downgrade South Africa)
Now that South Africa has suffered its first ratings downgrade in 17 years; how should you invest to keep your retirement safe?

Retirement Annuities, provident funds and pension funds may only have 25% of investments offshore.
Tax breaks remain useful.
Growth inside retirement funds are tax free.
There are great estate planning benefits to retirement funds (e.g. no estate duty, no executor’s fees, etc.)
