Credo’s chief investment officer Deon Gouws offers his considered views on why the US stock market has risen 9% since Donald Trump’s surprise US Presidential election victory – and warns how London would react if Jacob Zuma were to visit another Finance Ministry reshuffle on his nation.

Gouws is optimistic, however, that the rumoured replacement of FinMin Pravin Gordhan is not on the cards – the performance of global investment markets and especially the Rand’s exchange rate weigh heavily against that possibility.

In this free wheeling interview he also offers some long-term portfolio structuring advice and shares ideas on where to put your money in 2017. – Alec Hogg
