Real cost of retirement fees

In South Africa, only about seven to eight million of the general population has put measures in place for their retirement.

The South African National Treasury also indicates that only around 6% of the population will have enough money to retire comfortably, without having to change their standard of living.

One of the major contributing factors is that people simply do not know enough about the retirement products they are investing in.

Before choosing to invest in any retirement product, make sure you know how your money is being invested, what your asset allocation is and, most importantly, how much you are paying in fees.
