strategy and product suite. It is currently in the spotlight given the low-return environment we have seen in SA and the volatility highlighted above. Therefore, we have used the opportunity to remind investors of the importance of geographic diversification. At Old Mutual Wealth, we offer offshore investment solutions through our Private Client Securities business, Old Mutual Multi-Managers and Old Mutual Unit Trusts, demonstrating our commitment to providing relevant and market-leading investment solutions to enable our clients to take their wealth further. INTRODUCTION The levels of investment market volatility and uncertainty reached in 2020 were significantly higher than ever before. This was driven by economies shutting down due to Covid-19, the resulting economic recession, uncertainty regarding whether governments were going to support their economically inactive populations through stimulus support and a contentious US presidential election. Volatility can present significant investment risk. However, when working with a qualified investment professional who can correctly harness it, volatility can be used to generate investment growth and build wealth. This can be done through diversification - by investing in different assets or markets that would react differently when exposed to the same event. Empirical evidence suggests that diversification is the most important aspect to reach longterm investment returns and build wealth, with minimum risk. In the case of South Africa (SA), diversification is important and is further underscored by the fact that most local investors have an estimated 65% to 80% of their total wealth invested directly in the SA economy – an economy that represents only 0.5% of the global market. Offshore exposure has always been part of the Old Mutual Wealth To complement the above, we have recently increased access to offshore investing with the new range of Old Mutual International Global Funds. This range is focused on a unique offering that has a competitive fee structure, reduced minimum premiums and increased accessibility thought the OMI Life Wrapper, which brings its own set of taxefficiency and estate planning benefits. Navigating an interesting but often complex environment of offshore investing can be challenging. In this publication, our subject experts answer some of the frequently asked questions regarding offshore investing: • Why should I invest offshore? • What must I consider when investing offshore? • What are my offshore investment options? • What is the difference between emerging and developed markets? • Should I be considering financial immigration? • Where do I start? As with any major financial decision, it is always advisable to seek professional, expert advice to ensure that your actions and objectives remain aligned and that your investment plan is optimally structured.
