Some investors may find it interesting to note that South Africa has been one of the globe’s best performing stock markets for almost 100 years. We have been fortunate to say the least, with returns outstripping inflation by more than 8% since 1926. Global investors have not been as lucky, a relatively low 6% real return above inflation over the same period, in US$. While this may seem like a small percentage, over this horizon it equates to three times the capital for local over global equities by the end.
