Feeder Funds For Beginners & Growth Expectancy In Individual Shares vs Index Investing

In today’s episode, Warren Ingram answers your questions about local vs international feeder funds for beginners, the difference between individual shares vs index investing, and the growth rate. 

Questions/ Topics: 

  1. I’m new to investing & looking to invest in ETFs but I’ve been advised to avoid feeder funds because they eat into your profits over time. However, after doing research I’ve learned that investing directly in the US denominated ETF is going to cost more as there are tax implications to investing offshore than the Rand feeder funds. What is your take on this and when is the right time to swap over to international feeder fund investing? 
  2. What do you think of SA bluechip companies compared to ETFs such as S&P 500 or MSCI and what do you think the growth rate will be over 10years?
