Personal finance advisor Warren Ingram on ensuring you don’t run out of money before you run out of life.

Over the last five years, the average balanced unit trust – which is where most retirement money in South Africa is invested – delivered about 4% per year.

Over the last five years, listed property lost about 13% per year.

Most of those losses occurred in the last 18 months.

Know this: the next five years will almost certainly not look like the past five years, says personal finance advisor Warren Ingram (Galileo Capital) in an interview with The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield.
