You know my totally boring ones already, Vanguard world-VWRD in my foreign account and Satrix World-STXWDM (I previously told you SAWEF but that was a mistake) in my tax free savings account.

If you had R1m to invest now would you put it all in ETF's or something else?

If ETF's which ones?

I hold STXIND in my private portfolio and my TFSA, and in my TFSA I also hold SYGWD

As to having  R 1.0 million to invest I would create a reasonable portfolio of small industrial shares, retailers and healthcare/pharmacy such as Clicks, Dis - Chem and also maybe some Discovery -especially since they seem to be getting into other business operations like insurance etc.
My view is that when the economy does recover small business will lead the way and prices will rise the quickest as they are nimble, and retail will also benefit but people having more to spend on discretionary items and feel good purchases
However if Zuma departs soon and the exchange rate improves significantly then I believe funds will exit the country quite significantly through Saffers taking funds off shore

Non of those listed are my favorites and I don't hold any of these counters. I think I hold some of these companies but via funds invested in U/T's and ETF

I have NFEMOM and STXRAF in TFSA and SYGEU, SYGUK, SYGJP and SYGWD in my ETF ONLY account.

my annualised growth for them is between 12 and 36% so far, but i'm looking for some other ETFs to buy at this stage - I prefer ones that track foreign markets, seeing I have a share portfolio of local shares already

Jeez, STXWDM has taken a beating the past month. Good time to buy I guess?

It hasn't actually, what happened was the rand got stronger which means it's now cheaper to buy. In dollar terms it actually got slightly stronger over the same period thanks to Trumps tax cuts.

Trying to tell if it's a good time to buy or not depends on how well you can tell the future to see how the Rand will move. The best I can say is that it's a much better time than it was a week ago!
