Disappointment at S&P downgrade

Government has expressed disappointment at rating agency S&P’s decision to downgrade South Africa’s sovereign rating amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the first quarter of 2020 (Q1 20) ending only five days into the Covid-19 national lockdown, the statistics and trends analysis released by ooba home loans, South Africa’s foremost home loan comparison service, depicted an ideal environment for homebuyers.  

Kim Pfaff-Karg, BSc Property Studies (Honours) is the Chief Investment Officer at Spear REIT Limited, a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

The Property Industry Group has announced an industry-wide assistance and relief package for retail tenants that are hardest hit by complying with South Africa’s lockdown in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Moody’s downgrade of South Africa’s credit rating should have happened long ago.

Room for further interest rate cuts, says Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group.

Against the backdrop of the unprecedented times we find ourselves in, today’s (19 March 2020) decision by the Monetary Policy Committee to reduce the repo rate by 100bps is a critical step towards financial survival.

Registration is now open for SA’s incisive one-day REIT event that brings together hard-hitting global and local influencers from the listed property sector.

JSE listed EPP, Poland’s biggest retail landlord, released results for the year ended 31 December 2019, with distributable income earnings up by 9.6% and distributions of EUR 11.62 cents per share.
