Asset Tokenization As emerging technologies become more accepted and established throughout society, old problems become solved and new opportunities start to arise. Blockchain has been around for over a decade and has been popularized mostly through its association with cryptocurrencies. Offering numerous benefits, new applications of blockchain are constantly being researched in the hopes of disrupting industries. One of these applications is that of tokenization – specifically, the tokenization of assets. Firstly, what is asset tokenization?

Annual Inflation Continues to Fall A recent report from STATSA states that annual inflation eased further in November, falling to 3,6% from October’s 3,7%. This is the third successive month of disinflation, which means that the pace of price increases is slowing down. November’s reading is the lowest since December 2010 when the rate was 3,5%. The highest rate recorded since December 2010 was 7,0% in February 2016. Since the end of 2016 inflation has been on a downward trend and has remained firmly within the South African Reserve Bank’s 3%–6% monetary policy range since April 2017. Housing and utilities, miscellaneous goods and services, and food and non-alcoholic beverages were the biggest contributors to the 3,6% increase in November 2019. Food and non-alcoholic beverages’ inflation [...]

Medium Term Budget Policy Statement 2019 The 2019 MTBPS has been resented by Minister Tito Mboweni. His opening statement was a reference to the Aloe Ferox plant he brought to Parliament when presenting the February 2019 budget. “This little aloe is emerging from a long winter. During that winter, the ground became hard. The leaves fell from the trees and the air was bitterly cold. We toiled, hoping for better days. Our people became poorer. Some lost their jobs.” The above statement sums up his presentation. The key points are as follows: Economic growth is projected at 0.5 per cent for 2019, as long‐term growth estimates have fallen. As a result, revenue projections have been sharply reduced. Spending pressures continue to mount, led by the [...]

Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) Nhlanhla Nene is the first victim of the “State Capture Enquiry”. Just twoweeks before presenting a critical MTBPS, he resigned after a massive public backlash regarding his initial non-disclosure regarding his meetings with the infamous Gupta family. His replacement, Tito Mboweni, has been well received by the markets and public in general. It would appear that his appointment will be positive for South Africa’s economic recovery , and we look forward to his budget speech presentation on the 24th October . While it appears a short time for him to pre-pare, Treasury has a contingent of experts who have prepared the necessary budgets in line with government policy. Minister Mboweni should slot in with ease! Fast facts on Tito [...]
