Rand Hedging for South African Investors

Given the historic poor performance of the South African Rand, which is becoming increasingly concerning for South African investors, exposure to offshore investments such as AltX is strategically sound in mitigating currency risk. Experienced South African investors seeking to protect their investment capital from currency fluctuations are looking offshore to diversify their investment base into offshore assets by using multi asset class solutions.

One such asset class that AltX specialises and offers investments in includes:

  • Australian Real Estate Debt Investments
  • Investing in Real Estate Debt with the security of bricks and mortar (as the underlying security)
  • Paying regular monthly $AU returns

What are fixed interest investments?

What are fixed interest investments?

  • Corporate bonds;
  • Semi-government bonds;
  • Debentures.

Essentially, all products involve a loan from the investor to the issuer and in return the issuer is required to pay a set rate of interest periodically to the investor (yield) and repay the amount the investor lent (principal) at a set date (maturity date).
Fixed interest investments are typically lower risk than shares and property, but are a higher risk compared to deposit products issued by banks.

 

What products can you access via AltX?

AltX is an industry-leading self-directed platform providing investors with the opportunity to invest across a range of private real estate debt investments. Investors can access both individual deals and managed funds, both paying regular monthly returns between 4-8% p.a. paid monthly.

 

Investors can access these investments:

  • Directly by investing in Notes that are issued by SPVs and which hold 1st mortgages over underlying real-estate;
  • Indirectly by investing in unregistered managed investment schemes that invest in these types of Notes.

 

How do AltX’s investments differ to term deposits?

AltX’s investments provide a regular yield and repayment of the capital investment on the maturity date. This is different to a fixed-term deposit that is issued by a bank and has the benefit of the deposit guarantee of up to $250,000 per deposit account. AltX’s investments are not capital guaranteed and generally involve a higher risk than deposit products.
