Billiton, Rio Tinto and Anglo American are divesting from SA. What more needs to happen to persuade people to diversify personally? These global companies decisions are due to unattractiveness based on electricity shortages, labour unrest, weakening currency and government regulation uncertainty! Business Day, 20th August 2014. At least get the facts, truth and understand the opportunities at our offshore breakfasts next week. Click here to book.

With the recent talks from Afriforum about the Green Paper on land reform, about the impending change to the land rights of farmers in April 2015, we believe it is important for us to get to the bottom of what is happening and **what impact this will have on our wealth in South Africa.
