Celebrating 10 years of putting you first
In the decade since Personal Finance magazine was launched, consumer champions have emerged to fight for your rights against a financial services sector that lent recklessly, exploited ignorance and profited from onerous penalties and fees.
From way back in November 2000, when exchange traded funds made their JSE debut, to April this year, when the Consumer Protection Act was signed into law, you, as a consumer and investor, have benefited from changes to the law and to industry practice.
Along the way, the government began to reform the country’s retirement-funding system, life assurers were forced to repay investors R3 billion, pension surpluses were redistributed and changes were made to the way medical schemes function.
The 10th-anniversary edition of Personal Finance magazine looks at all these changes – and more – and explains how they continue to help you now and into the future.
Volume 40 (the third quarter 2009 issue) of Personal Finance magazine is on sale now, packed with essential reading for anyone with an interest in managing his or her money. In the latest issue, find out:
How to handle conflict in a sectional title complex;
What’s going on with Fica (less commonly known as the Financial Intelligence Centre Act) six years after it came into force;
Why balanced fund managers with the right skills are best placed to make the right calls on asset allocation;
How to invest a little spare cash in the wine industry . . . and much more.
