Weak rand sees massive outflows of assets

“The rand’s depreciation has led our South African institutional clients to move sizable assets abroad,” said Anthony Ginsberg, Managing Director of GinsGlobal Index Funds, on Bruce Whitfield’s The Money Show.

“The rand would be substantially weaker in our view, if it were not for remaining exchange control limitations on institutional (pension) assets.

“Unfortunately, most of the press in the US only seems to cover negative news from South Africa regarding the new visa restrictions and load shedding,” said Ginsberg.

Scroll down to listen to the audio for a discussion by Ginsberg about the rand, the current US economy and America’s take on the financial meltdowns in Greece and China.

He also touches on the nuclear deal with Iran.

US GDP growth will be much better than what we’ll get in South Africa. The US economy is picking up significantly.
