Knowledge of the financial industry is very limited in South Africa and in an effort to address this issue, Tony firstly unpacks:

• The perceptions and myths that many of us have regarding investments, savings and how these incorrect assumptions prejudice our decision making?

• What are the actual differences between SAVINGS and INVESTMENTS; namely how ”time” a ”risk” affect what type of account you should be steering yourself towards.

• Placing SAVINGS & INVESTMENTS into real context in South Africa; Inflation; Lack of education and how savings can combat income erosion (when inflation decreases the ”real” value of someone’s income)’.
