Last year was a mediocre one for South Africa: the JSE ALSI ended 2015 only 5.13% up over the 12 months and GDP growth was well south of 2% for the full year.

According to Catalyst Fund Managers, the SA Listed Property Index (SAPY) recorded a negative total return (-6.12%) for the month ended 31 December 2015.

A country renowned for breaking world records, this is one we do not want.

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.
