In December 2015, the FNB House Price Index inflation rate continued its mild year-on-year growth uptick of recent months.

The New Year will see the trend towards passive and real asset investing continue, with ongoing volatility in a positively trending global market, a potential recovery in Emerging Markets and the rise of robo-advice in South Africa.

Economically, we are likely in the early stages of what I call the “stagnation” or “correction” phase of the economic super-cycle, “early” meaning perhaps 4-8 years in (depending on whether you ignore the short growth up-tick around 2010/11 and start the clock in 2008, or otherwise start counting from 2012), and the length of such super-cycle stagnation phases can conceivably roll on for far longer than that.

President Zuma surprised markets on Wednesday evening by recalling South Africa’s well-respected Finance Minister, Nhlanhla Nene, and appointing David van Rooyen, an ANC veteran, as the head of National Treasury.  

The November CPI (Consumer Price Index) inflation rate edged slightly higher, from 4.7% year-on-year in the previous month to 4.8%.

National Treasury has revised downwards South Africa’s economic growth to 1.5%.

CPI inflation rises to 5% in July 2015

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose to 5% in July 2015, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) said on Wednesday.

The South African Reserve Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) raised the key monetary policy interest rate – the repurchase, or repo rate – by 25 basis points from 5,75% to 6% per annum.

First National Bank (FNB) will increase its prime lending rate by 0.25% from 9.25% to 9.50% following the decision earlier today by the SARB Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to increase the repo rate.
