Off topic / Satrix 40 and Satrix Indi Portfolio
« on: October 03, 2013, 01:12:26 pm »
I am having a bit of a bun fight with Nedgroup Investments as the two funds that I am invested in are both managed funds and they charge a 1.73% TER. They have provided me with returns for the year ending 2010,2011, and 2012 and they seem to have produced return which I consider somewhat ordinary. Can anyone on the forum provide me with the above Satrix performances over the same periods as mentioned.
Any input would be appreciated :'(

I have had very good growht with Omnia and positive it will continue, also nice divi of 2.70, LDT tomorrow, solid company.
Something for Orca to consider with EOH and STXIND.
Have all three in my LT Portfolio and happy with the growht. :)
franz - growth means different things to different people - Orca is trying to get the highest growth (share price) on his investments so that he has a reasonable lump sum for a comfortable retirement, and once his has accumulated that wealth he will invest in instruments which are less risky - so that's his growth objective. I also want growth in my portfolio and look for growth of between 12 and 15% over inflation - which I am looking to keep me comfortable in my 80's and beyond. I live exceedingly well on my present pension but the reality is that once you retire the costs that eat away at your pension are medical costs, access to a bond to buy up on a house if you so wish, municipal costs just keep ramping up as does petrol, and food and eating out- there are very few costs that one incurs when working that suddenly magically go away when you retire - they stay right there. So if you are investing to augment your pension or lifestyle after retiring then I would say try and accumulate as much as R 4.0 million (in today's terms) over and above your pension so that you can afford to live like you did just prior to retiring - your house and car are not part of that net wealth
