OFFSHORE investing has been a cornerstone of the Brenthurst Wealth strategy over the past years. Investors who did not increase their offshore investment exposure in recent years have suffered a tremendous opportunity cost and in some cases, particularly over one, two and three years, have not seen any real increase in the real value of their investments in rand terms.
Many South African investors are asking whether there is any benefit to investing offshore now that the domestic economy seems to be on the upturn.
Clients of Brenthurst Wealth will be well aware of our long-standing investment strategy of increasing offshore exposure across all our portfolios. Offshore diversification has long been an underlying theme in our investment portfolios, which was accelerated from about 2010 onwards.
At the time our investment approach was met with substantial resistance, but the events since then, as well as the relative investment performance over the past years, has vindicated this position and has added considerable wealth to our clients.
