COVER recently caught up with Jason Swartz, Investment Strategist at Old Mutual Investment Group, to get his views on the 2021 Budget.
According to Jason he felt that the budget was very market friendly, and that it basically signalled we were open for business. However, he pointed out that it is still early days, and we need to see execution, we need to see plans that manifests in terms of real tangible effects. All indications are moving incrementally towards positive signs around execution and reform. At the end of the day, the way we can consolidate our debt has to be around growth, and it has to be centred around executing a strong growth plan. And Jason said that he personally felt that they showed quite positive signals towards that.
