A community of solvers coming together to make a difference

20 October 2021 Shirley Machaba, CEO at PwC Southern Africa

“As PwC Africa, we take seriously our responsibility for contributing to a better tomorrow. That’s why we have revisited our societal purpose strategy to ensure that we make an impactful, sustained contribution in the communities where we operate. We focus on not only what we are doing as a business, but also how we can help our clients to build trust and deliver sustained outcomes.”

There is a sense of urgency now, with regard to successfully responding to these challenges by building trust and delivering sustained outcomes that create value. The meaning of value has also shifted; organisations have had to take a step back and consider not only what value means for themselves, but also for a broader array of stakeholders, over a longer timeframe.

As a community of solvers, PwC Africa has strengthened its societal purpose strategy in response to unprecedented change.

QUESTION

The second draft amendments to Regulation 28 will allow retirement funds to allocate up to 45% of their assets to SA infrastructure, with a further 10% for rest of Africa; but the equity & offshore caps remain unchanged. What are your thoughts on the proposal?

ANSWER

Infrastructure? You mean cash returns with higher risk!?!
Infrastructure cap is way too high
Offshore limit still needs to be raised
Who cares… Reg 28 does not apply to discretionary savings
