Get the best out of your childrens' educational journey
Liberty Newsletter January 2019
Cost of education in sunny South Africa

Welcome to the New Year. As a valued client, we’d like to wish you and your family all the best for 2019. At this time of the year, for those of us who are parents, our children take on new challenges and opportunities at school. In this edition, we focus on helping you and your children get the best out of their educational journey. Do you know how much it will cost over the long term?

On the health front, one of the many things to love about our country is how sunny it is. However, we also have a responsibility to protect our skin from one of the most diagnosed cancers in the country: skin cancer. In this light, in December, we provided much needed protection to beach-goers in Durban and used the opportunity to understand what people do to protect their skin from the harsh South African sun. In this edition, we share what we found out.

Kevin Lings, Chief Economist at STANLIB, also provides us with his outlook for the future of the South African Rand.

Finally, find out if you might be one of the many South Africans who has some money due to you because of unclaimed benefits.

What you could expect from the local currency in 2019
