What’s inside… FAnews Magazine June 2021

The June edition is packed with articles you want to read. We touch on content and issues that are topical and relevant, and ultimately written for you, to empower you. The articles are written by industry experts and FAnews journalists, so if there’s a topic you would want to read more about, or have very specific issues or questions about, please don’t hesitate to raise it with us. Over and above our focus on investments, we’ve touched on many relevant topics, ranging from claims handling, litigation, trusts, broker consultants and POPIA. If you are not one of our 19 100 registered CPD users, you are missing out. To make it easier for you, we have highlighted some articles we believe have good value, and we have marked those you can get your CPD hours on (IISA and FPI). The links will take you directly to the digital copy of the FAnews June 2021 edition.
