In recent years, a transformative shift has occurred in the corporate world as an increasing number of businesses have significantly pivoted towards alternative energy sources. Solar energy has emerged as a prominent and favoured choice amongst the various options.
The South African economy is grappling with continuous power outages and increasing energy tariffs. This turmoil has left businesses in complete disarray as many cannot keep their doors open unless they introduce an alternative energy source.
Jaltech, an alternatives investment specialist, undertook a recent survey aimed at understanding the alternatives investment market in South Africa and, in doing so, gathered data from over 1300 participants comprising individual investors and financial advisors. The survey focused on understanding the mindsets, trends, approaches and behaviours of individual investors and financial advisors towards alternative investments.
Jaltech has launched its latest alternative investment which focuses at providing South African investors with exposure to the rapidly growing solar sector in South Africa. The investment combines the attractive long term, lower risk nature of solar investments with the addition of a large upfront tax benefit.
