The Weekly Shyft: Episode 19
It’s February 2022, and this is the nineteenth Audio Episode of “The Shyft Lift”, the regular news digest of the App for the globally-minded, based in South Africa. In 2021, South Africa’s home and beauty market grew by about 15%, with the strongest category being beauty products, which recorded 25% growth last year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kye-iEU46Jg&ab_channel=SABCNews According to data from Stats SA, it now takes five months (from July to November) for the country to record over 1 million tourists arriving in SA, unlike pre Covid when it took just one busy month such as January 2020. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ko06SLEYqx8 In 2021, machinery worth R130 billion was imported into SA from China, which is an increase from the R109 billion that was imported in 2020. https://www.reuters.com/markets/currencies/chinas-exports-imports-grow-more-slowly-december-2022-01-14/ Durban port received 82,400 fewer containers in 2021 compared to 2019. There were also fewer vessels calling at ports and more empty containers being shipped out of SA than ever before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riSusnzHaOs&ab_channel=SABCNews As power demand climbs gradually over the next four months, SA will need much more power than what is currently generated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTX7qweHE3U The recent delivery of the national budget may have motivated you to reassess the state of your bank balance and where your money is going. Here’s what to keep in mind as you think strategically about your investments this year. Firstly, the global stock market is a wild ride even at the best of times, and these (you may have noticed) are not the best of times. Secondly, share prices are tricky things – and investors who try to time the market are on to a hiding. Lastly, despite the uncertainty, US stocks remain a smart place for global citizens to invest their money. We discuss whether a passive-investing bubble has been forming for some time and if it may be on its way to bursting (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkeEyObsvbc&t=2101s), Apple’s new Tap to Pay feature (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmmHniYpybc), the recovery of USD 3.6 billion that was stolen in a 2016 hack of Hong Kong cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex (https://www.cnbc.com/2022/02/08/feds-seize-3point6-billion-stolen-from-bitfinex-hack.html), and also the number one wellness trend for 2022, which is Dirt-y Wellness, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHcY-iFSYZM).

Tractor sales have grown by 25% in 2021. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpVAUBhxu1U&ab_channel=GIBSBusinessSchool As we all get to grips with a new year, we list the top companies in which Shyft users decided to invest to grow their money in 2021. The top 10 shares and ETFs for the year, by USD value, were: Apple Invesco QQQ Trust series 1 Tesla Microsoft Pfizer Netflix Nvidia Twitter SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust Zoom Video      Communications We also take a look at tech in 2022, sharing five innovations and technologies set to make waves this year.

#HearHerVoice: Resolving GBV: Why women can’t bear the brunt
Gender-based violence is perpetrated by men, but it often feels like its victims, women, are left to pick up the pieces. That’s why on Friday, 3 December, we handed the Space over to a panel of men on Twitter to discuss how they and men, in general, could take responsibility in creating a safer society for South Africa’s women and children.  TRIGGER WARNING: Subject matter relating to gender-based violence DISCLAIMER: The views in this podcast are those of the speakers and do not necessarily represent the official views of Standard Bank.

The Weekly Shyft: Episode 15
It’s October 2021, and this is the fifteenth Audio Episode of “The Shyft Lift”, the regular news digest of the App for the globally-minded, based in South Africa. Biotech firm Moderna plans to build a vaccine manufacturing facility in Africa, capable of producing up to 500 million doses of mRNA vaccines each year. (https://www.news24.com/health24/medical/infectious-diseases/coronavirus/opinion-south-africa-mrna-technology-hub-gives-hope-to-africa-20211015) South Africa’s trade surplus widened to a record high in the April-to-June period this year. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lP5a8WXoreA) Direct investment into SA recorded a net inflow in the second quarter of the year, although the net outflow of capital increased from to R64.7-billion to R109.6-billion. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roE3196xNe0) The three top performing shares on the JSE in September were Montauk Renewables (up 41%), Aspen (up 39%), and Sasol (up 27%). Overall, the healthcare industry recorded the best returns for the month, at 16.4%. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDQbhv5xTAQ) Premiums received by life insurance companies have risen sharply. The quarterly figure for Q2 2021 is higher than ever before and 30% higher than the equivalent quarter in 2019. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFEhZDIBR9k) The past few challenging years have had many South Africans – those privileged enough to be in such a position – weighing up their options in “greener pastures”. But, there’s a convincing argument why Mzansi might just be the best place to play the long game. We list seven reasons to be optimistic about what SA has to offer, financially – from equity returns averaging 7.2% a year between 1900 and 2020, to the rand’s position as the strongest emerging market currency. Finally, we hear which brands are turning teens on (Crocs make an appearance https://finance.yahoo.com/news/3-big-surprises-in-how-teens-are-spending-piper-sandler-survey-202041027.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAAbCqjhsakbw0Gqk4nk5YbP_GqzjlfCMNDMDr4IX9wMAUuaR8C7l9kftu) and how lockdowns have killed bureau de changes chain ICE (https://www.iata.org/en/pressroom/pr/2020-03-05-01/). We marvel at Mark Zuckerberg complaining about fake news (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npa4E1eumjs) and celebrate that MindLabs – a mental health app – has raised $3.5 million to help reduce anxiety, stress and loneliness.

The Weekly Shyft: Episode 14
It’s September 2021, and this is the fourteenth Audio Episode of “The Shyft Lift”, the regular news digest of the App for the globally-minded, based in South Africa. Governments in sub-Saharan Africa have budgeted to spend about $340 billion in 2021. By contrast, household spending will be closer to $1.3 trillion, nearly four times as much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwfsyJAqXaM Between 2008 and 2019 the China Development Bank and the Export-Import Bank of China lent $462 billion to other countries – not far off the $467 billion lent by the World Bank over the same period. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlAurYDOQ8o Total issuance of bonds this year has reached R66.6bn, which is 27% higher year on year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qyNT8eqaOs The largest player in the local steel market, AMSA, makes about 65-67% of all sales with three million tonnes per year. This could rise if the market is boosted by positive global GDP growth and a more stable economy in SA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r5CVaxtU1A Only five African countries – Egypt, South Africa, Senegal, Tunisia and Ethiopia – can produce vaccines. The recent African Continental Free Trade Area agreement aims to improve the flow of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment along with vaccines. https://www.imf.org/en/News/Articles/2021/04/15/tr041521-transcript-of-april-2021-sub-saharan-africa-press-briefing This month we focus on creating wealth for the next generation. In South Africa, one of the most unequal countries in the world, income distribution remains stubbornly racialised, gendered and spatial. An important factor in the racial component is so-called Black Tax, which occurs at all socio-economic levels. It used to mean only financially supporting elderly relatives who were denied the opportunity to create wealth themselves, largely due to historic factors, but now it often includes siblings and other family members. In SA, 70% of families will lose the majority of their wealth by the 3rd generation, and 90% by the 4th generation. The top 1% of South African earners take home 20% of all income while the top 10% take home 65%. The remaining 90% of South Africans share 30% of income in South Africa. Dr Thanduhlanga Tshume, Head of Generational Wealth at Standard Bank suggests five ways to create generational wealth: start now with stocks, clear your debt, diversify, look to the future, and remember that it’s not just about the money.

Since it’s Women's Month in South Africa, we’re focusing on a subject which affects us all: the gender investment gap, which is created in part by the gender pay gap. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y031BOvZr7I) It’s a global Issue. In the UK, just one in five women currently hold an investment, compared to over a third of men. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAut0DVQyWE) Women have 30% to 40% less money than men in retirement, despite the fact that they live longer than men. A local survey found that 32% of South African women feel unsure about their retirement plans. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dkj_jRhPgKE) A lack of time, confidence, access to the right information, industry jargon, and not knowing where to start are some of the obstacles at play. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiSKtXnj0B4) To start some conversations, Jefa – a Latin American startup – is building a challenger bank, specifically designed for women.

In other news, central banks in Africa and around the world are considering issuing digital currencies and will be closely watching the pilot project in China. https://www.cnbcafrica.com/media/6233268991001/the-investment-case-for-digital-currencies-in%20-africa/ We find out which SA shares foreign equity investors are favouring in the year to date (MTN, Amplats, Nedbank, Bytes and FirstRand.

The global investment industry oversees about $100-trillion of assets; SA asset managers manage about R2.9-trillion of that amount. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrHugcX4o0I To start some dinner-party conversations, according to a 2019 report by iDefense, South Africa has the third-highest number of cybercrime victims worldwide, losing approximately R2.2-billion a year to cyber-attacks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=681CTOczw1k Legendary economist, professor and investor Benjamin Graham said, “The intelligent investor is a realist who sells to optimists and buys from pessimists.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuqLGAbFurE Amazon’s former CEO Jeff Bezos faced backlash after thanking employees and customers for paying for his maiden voyage to space.

If you aren’t investing offshore, you’re limited to the South African market, which makes up barely 1% of the global market. And while offshore investing may sound like something only millionaires can do, the truth is that it’s far more accessible than it seems. In this episode, we look at the things you need to know if you’re starting out with offshore investments – from potential red flags, to how your retirement fund works and what happens with tax. We also learn about Tesla’s at-risk reputation, Apple’s dealbreaker with Hyundai, and the unlikely way nearly R1-million in poached abalone was found.

Fortunes were lost and made on global stock markets in 2020. Uncertainty about the impact of the new coronavirus initially led to a sharp sell-off in the first few months of the year, wiping billions of dollars off the value of some of the world’s most valuable companies. But some became greater than ever.  These include: Shopify (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQRXssjlk9U),  Amazon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQRXssjlk9U, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GltlJO56S1g),  Tesla (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0871VJfvD1c),  Spotify (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdQ7mippAiU)  Apple (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHUz63xFyyw, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX9xBB_vBsc).

With a few weeks of 2021 behind us, it’s time to think about balance. Because many people now dial in from home, attaining work-life balance has become trickier than ever. While we may have gained extra hours by cutting the commute, those hours are more likely to accrue to our employers than to leisure. The good news? Harmony, not balance, is the new goal, and we can show you how to make it happen. In this edition we also learn about offshore investment red flags, how Bitcoin is breaking records, and why your pineapples may be worth more than you think.

Forex trading levels have increased hugely in Africa this year, growing by almost 500% in the first five months of the pandemic. Trading is far from a get-rich-quick fix, however: here be dragons. We asked six forex traders to share their know-how. In this edition we also learn about 2020’s best apps, the humble origins of Netflix, and how not replying to emails will help fight climate change.
