Can giving up coffee make you R300,000?

October 2, 2014

The English proverb “Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves” is backbone to many a cutting back on small luxuries strategy.

Sacrificing your daily latte can save you around $1200 a year – at a rough rate of ZAR10 to the Dollar you’ll have saved all of R12000 – which means you’ll have to go on a 25 year coffee diet to save yourself R300,000!

This could be the cure for your sleeping problem, which will leave you more time to dream about your retirement plans. Lekker! Or is it yet another unsustainable penny wise and pound-foolish strategy?

Don’t you think the more than R1 Billion in unclaimed South African policies waiting to be paid to hundreds of thousands beneficiaries the world over presents a sporting chance to lay your hands on the R300,000 rather than giving up coffee for 25 years?

Why not help the Association of Savings and Investment South Africa and the insurance industry to relieve them of the burden of finding the beneficiaries of unclaimed assets and policies and potentially help yourself to a well deserved latte a day for the rest of your life?

All you have to do to find out whether your name is on the Unclaimed Policies List is to request a free, no obligation personal South African investment report.

What if your name is on the list? Have yourself that latte, sit back, keep your eye on your inbox and start making sustainable investment plans!
