The first role I can remember playing in a school theatre production was a Butterfly, and then an Octopus, and then later on, one of many Tin Men in a Grade 3 rendition of The Wizard of Oz. I’ve always loved being on stage and back then a huge part of the appeal was being able to keep the costume, which I of course wore on every and any possible occasion until it was in tatters. It was my own way of prolonging the magic that you experience as a storyteller in an imaginary world.

Given the tendency for Stokvels to be medium to long-term organisations, maybe an ETF centered portfolio would be best, with some value equities thrown in the periphery (in what is termed a Core-Satellite strategy by asset managers). In the second installment of our Stokvel series, we chatted to investment Stokvel group, PH Umcebo, on their investment journey and how they have organised and structured their apporach to the markets.

In the first of three posts about Stokvels and group investments, we briefly introduce what we understand Stokvels to be and their social context. The following blogs will be from Stokvel participants on just how they work in the investment and financial space.

Over the last couple of years (three almost) we've slowly been breaking the velvet barrier on exclusivity when it comes to investing.

In the year since I've become an 'Investor' I have realised that the investor doesn't necessarily own a tie, nor wear matching socks all week. Most importantly, the Investor tweets. And tweets, and tweets, because, we're bored of old conventions. I do wish there was more Facebook commenting though!
