More about the book!
Secure Your Pension After Covid-19: Strategies to Protect Your Money from the Effects of National Lockdowns and Ratings Downgrades by Bruce Cameron and Wouter Fourie is out in August from Penguin Random House SA.
The people who face the biggest dangers from the Covid-19 pandemic are pensioners.
The virus places their lives at greater risk, and their limited finances are under serious threat. They need to act now to ensure they keep themselves financially afloat.
And the Covid-19 virus is not their only threat. They were already facing the major fallout from state capture under Jacob Zuma’s presidency and the resulting downgrading of South Africa to junk status and the plummeting of the value of the rand.
This book clearly explains the challenges pensioners face today and outlines what they can do to improve their situation.
Written by award-winning author Bruce Cameron and leading financial planner Wouter Fourie, and based on research by the country’s largest pension fund administrator, Alexander Forbes, as well as life companies Just SA and Sanlam, this book is essential for anyone concerned about their financial future.
